    Over the last several years, I've ridden a bunch of different bikes of all makes. My favourite of all of them is the R1200S.

    But if cost were no object, I would get an R1200ST and have an HP2 Sport engine and control unit installed.

    As the herd is thinned here, one bike will remain standing... the GS Adventure. It has delivered more grins, from rides short and far, with more memories, than any other.

    I've been searching for the answer to this question my whole life. I have a fair collection, and I've considered all ages, nationalities, makes, models and styles. (Yes, even American, but they fell off the radar years ago) I finally whittled the field down to a few, and I can attest to the fact that the British and Italians have made a strong showing. BSA's, Triumphs, Guzzi's and Ducati's all have their strengths and can provide intense enjoyment in their specific areas. But none have really reached that level of "The Absolute Best Bike in the World".

    Only a Beemer could do that. And not just any Beemer. I regularly ride a wide range of BMW's, from /2's to oil heads, but there is only one that I would keep if I had to sell all the others:



    Nothing else even comes close!!

    favorite Beemer...?
    had an 88 R100RT which never really sparked any love...
    i love my 93 R100RS. tho i also love my 88 K100(RS). tho i do love 'em both,
    the airhead has more *personality* than the K, i'd choose it as the fave-
    hands down, no contest.

    i submit:

    I love my 77 R 75....smooth as silk...but I have to say that my favorite is my 100 RT (1980). And I am getting happier as I lighten it up....I think I will end up with a 100/7 with a windshield when all is said and done..

    My favorite is my current ride: 1995 R1100RSL.



    Second favorite would be the one I most regret selling: 1983 R65.

    There are two roads in life; the twisty one is vastly more fun.

    My R1200GS is a great motorcycle and probably the best motorcycle I've owned. As far as my favorite? It's between my old 1991 R100GS (pictured) and the 1993 R100R I currently own. I guess I'll give the nod to the R100GS as the most fun and versatile.

    14 R1200GSA, 93 R100R. No car is as fun to drive as any motorcycle is to ride.
