Very nicely done - thanks for inspiration...
That's funny, I also owned an early build '94 R1100RS in the same gorgeous pearl color as yours. Traded this with 78k miles on it for a 2001 R1150GS, and still sometimes regret that decision.
Mine was before BMW started putting the Rider Info Display (RID) on them, and a friend with a later model RS with RID asked how I could ride mine with no engine oil temp gauge. I replied "I guess ignorance is bliss".
Makes me want to get mine insured and start riding it again!!! Same color, different year...Love the bike but started losing feeling in right hand due to ergononomics BUT short rides are fine. Love the bike...is my first BMW! I even got to replace the transmission!!! LOL $$$$$
Sweet! Enjoy those D7s--they'll light up whatever you need to see!

Took a socially distanced ride with my newly fitted Giant Loop "Around the World" panniers with their great new quick release mounts. When these Panniers are off the bike, no plate or mounting hardware remains. Great option to go back and forth between these soft bags and my hard cases.
Took some photos
Funny, I traded my 76K mile RS for a 1999 GS. No RID on any of my R1100RS bikes.
I managed to sneak out today and grab the Colorado Tag-O-Rama tag
I hit a bit of snow in our canyon coming back home
...which means tomorrow I get to create a new tag and I have the perfect spot
I wrote a Haiku titled Safey Third:
a brook and a bear
through the lair one idles down
it must be a sign
...and that tells everyone EXACTLY where I'm going to move the tag to tomorrow. I wonder how long it'll last?
My license plate expires midnight tonight
Looks like fun! Mind if I ask which windshield extender you have?
Ooo. Ooo. I know where you’re going.
Can you guess what the tag will be? I tried to channel my inner Forrest Fenn in the poem - it tells you all you need to know
My first BMW, a R1100 RS - "full" fairing and wearing our https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giancarlo_Falappa replica helmets in 1999 (sorry for the quality - scan from pic).
Not today, but a while ago. “COVID-19 time” allowed me to take a few pics of my ‘95 R1100GS this weekend:
Oil temperature gauge custom fab. Since it’s an early oilhead, plastic seemed to be more appropriate than aluminum etc.
Commuted today... and generated the next Colorado Tag-O-Rama tag on the way home (an excuse to ride some e-ticket roads )
Checked my valves today. I'm going to need new valve cover bolt seals, two or three were torn, I think they're original to the bike, valve cover gaskets too (almost 50k miles).
Replaced the gearbox and FD oil.
ETA: I really need a bike lift. That garage floor and my 55 year old knees just dont seem to get along as well as they used to.
Today's project.... crash bars... well at least the lower ones
I “hate” you right now for having both elevation and curvy roads like that...
LOL - Sorry mate. Come by for a visit!
You'd really hate me if you saw the road I live on and "have to" travel every day.
I can literally drag a knee in the corner 300 feet from my driveway...
This road sign is in front of my house:
...and if I head up my road instead of down, it turns to dirt.
This pic was taken up the hill from the house on my road:
I keep telling my wife we need to turn our rental property into a moto-air-bnb.
When I lived in Flatlandia I planned my entire year's vacation around the type of roads I now live in the middle of
Estes? You need to send me the GPS info of the start of that road!
