    Seats built by Corbin. I'm sending mine back for a refurbishing next winter. After 20 years, they are showing signs of age (me, too). This time around will add heated rider seat. The RS is my favorite: nimble, comfortable.....and I can flatfoot at a stop.

    I've a feeling were are not in Kansas anymore

    A couple of years ago I bought this 04' R1150R with only 12k on the clock from a fellow in Kansas. He told me that after moving from southern California to Kansas he had become frustrated with the lack of exiting roads and interesting destinations in his area and eventually lost interest in riding. I have doubts that there is really no good riding in Kansas, but I was happy he sold me the bike. No lack of exiting roads here in western NC. I think another year of riding in the NC Appalachian Mountains will make up for the dull episode in Kansas.

    Is that Ferro Blue ?...looks like it. If so? I have one exactly like it, just a bit larger windshield.

    They are indeed a nice ride.

    Yes, this is the dark ferro blue paint scheme with the blacked-out engine and transmission. I think the R1150R looked best in dark ferro blue and silver. I also liked the yellow paint with the dark ferro blue accents.

    I was just thinking....if one were to paint that small windscreen the same colour, it would look really good. If you DO decide to do this, paint the inside for a flawless and virtually chip-proof finish.

    Mine [is] dark ferro, and I painted the inside lower portion of my 'touring' shield...it does look nice {IMO} [if we're allowed to brag on our own] It gives it sort of a fairing/shield look.

    If you give your R to BC1100S for a few months this summer he can probably get a few post worthy pictures.

    Just hang on a minute there, young man. I've never been known to turn down the use of a free motorcycle for any period of time. Besides, I have a different camera for pictures of bikes which are "almost worthy".

    Bluehole: Is that new avatar a picture of your bike? Although it pains me to say this...My compliments!

    Yo! Who you calling young? I resemble that remark sir, please take it back. Damned proud to be an old (and getting older by the minute) man. Though I do get a bit grumpy now and then.

    And...are you implying that an R or RS is almost worthy? It's been a long winter, so I prescribe some serious corner carving to get back on straight and narrow.

    Cheers!

    Yes, it is my bike, but i have to give credit to my son. He took a couple of pictures and this happens to be one of them.
