    Mihalis looks like you have an R 100GSPD as well as an R 1150 GSA ?
    Very nice collection . I had an R100gspd , sold it too soon ( like so many other bikes )

    Looks like you installed front fork with calipers from 1150?
    How does you feel about new brakes? how abs works?

    I changed the front fork and and the calipers
    It is “plug and play”
    Also changed the brake lines.

    I think the brakes are better now but not so big difference

    Thank you. But your bike looks amazing.
    What have you did with exhaust pipe? metalpolish?

    I found a stock new exhaust in a very low price.
    Now it has only 5.000 km.

    MIHALIS TZIMAS, are those had guards reinforced or just molded plastic? Good looking ride.

    Hope this message finds you well and everyone around the world is healthy during these interesting times.

    Miss riding my GS so decided to post a picture or two of my last ride with her before shutting down

    Thank you strictlyJDM; yes it has been tough to modify my behaviour to this degree. Hopefully for only a short time. I also wish you and yours, the best in the coming days.

    But for now, as Moshe says, its "Kickstand Down", until we get to the other side.

    Take care of yourself, your family, and your bike. All should be well soon.

    The horses are getting restless, in the stable.

    I had to deliver some extra masks to a friend, so I decided to take the GS and blow the dust off of it.

    y‘all stay fit and healthy in those difficult times!

    My 94 r1100gs. Finished polishing up the rims changed the oil and filter. I also just finished the ABS mod and balanced the carbs with my carbmate. replaced the tapered bearing in the gearbox with sealed bearings and rebuilt the final drive that was about 7 years ago. Havent drivien it since 2016. Fired right up after being under a motocycle cover for the last 3.5 years. Still have the original bmw panniers. Cheers
