Seems to me that the 95 - 00 BMW R1100R and R1100RT bikes are under appreciated. Was fortunate to have a 1996 R1100R last summer, and now have a 2000 R1100R. -ABS -Tele-lever front suspension (NO brake dive!) -Good seat height, adjustable. -Fuel-injected -Easy to add heated grips ~$200 on ebay), BMW hard bags ($225 from -ibmwr), and windshield ($60 new ebay Cee Bailey) -Center and side stands are standard. -Fine performer. -Modern asthetics. -Comfortable for passengers. -Shaft drive. Just got my 2000 R1100R for $2700 off craigslist. My guess is that this is not old enough to be a classic, and not new enough to be blingy. Despite that this bike will tour with the best of them, it only has 5-speeds. Yet the gearing is adequate for all the riding I've done (interstate, in-city, canyons, etc.). Any thoughts?
