My 2004 BMW R1150 GS Adventure taken on the Hahntennjoch in Austria...
Unfortunately, my 2004 R1150 GS Adventure was written off during my 2009 tour, thanks to an 18 year old with a 17 day old driver's licence who ran into the back of me while I was stopped in traffic. The idiot was on his cell phone on that all so important call. Cell phone users - get a life!
But my 2004 R1150 GS Adventure got replaced with something much nicer...an ultra mint, low mileage 1995 Porsche Carrera 2 (993) in Speed Yellow.

Nice picture of a future classic.Originally Posted by R11S

I haven't owned a BMW in a long time.
In 1968 I had a new R69S and boy do I miss that bike, but this is a different breed entirely; I love it.
i succumbed to that song after 1 year and 12K on an 84 R100, you even have the same color as me!Originally Posted by R11S
