what's shameful is that we bought the same bike at roughly the same time (even the color) and I have 30,000 miles and thought I rode a lot. :eek1 Thanks for the list of repairs. Did I see that you now have an 1150 to replace the 800? Very cool. Guess you'll be moving to the "other" GS forum. thanks for your write up on the tensioner replacement and your contributions.
