    Absolutely without a doubt!! Love the all yellow paint job too, it looks so unique.

    Here's a picture of my RSL.

    My 94, now at 115,000 miles

    I installed the GS intake tubes, K&N air filter, matched the intake manifolds to the heads, Delco plugs, Speed-Bleeders (bleeding the brakes is EASY!), only use synthetic fluids (Shell Rotella Full Synthetic oil). I plan to clean up the header welds with my die grinder, and fabricate my own cold air intake to take in air below the front edge of the fairing. I try to do all my own work, such as replacing the rear main seal, new clutch assembly, 96 spec tranny, changed out the ABS modulator (not a bad job actually), replaced the front discs mount buttons (yes, they SHOULD be replaced at NO more than 100k miles), new brake pads. Its a great bike, but I sure wish it would shift better.

    The new R1200R SURE is tempting.

    But this classic stands out because of the unique color, of which I have seen only one other in Wisconsin. My best bike ever is now at 143,000 miles and going stronger all the time!

    Trunk for R1100RSL

    It's just a BMW trunk, same one designed for the R1100RT. Look for a used set of luggage for any RT and it will pop right on the RS.

    Cheers,

    1st time

    First time post and new member. I am Tom in Colonial Heights VA. I bought my first BMW a few weeks ago. A 1996 R850R. So far it has been a great bike, I have only had the chance of putting a little over 100 miles on it.

    I know I'll have a lot of questions and looking forward to advice here.

    MY 04 R1150RS, I'm slowly blacking things out since the motor is black, the other silver parts just don't go w/ the bike. The foot pegs, paralever arm, brake and gear lever have been powder coated black. Tinted stock BMW windshield not available in the US. and look close at the turn signal lenses too (I hate those juvenile clear lenses). Still need to do the rims, fork legs and possibly the diff and shaft (those will take some work).

    Wish I could figure out how to send a bigger picture of the thing so you could see it, but I ain't gonna pay for smug mug

    Here's a picture of the windshield and turn signals. The turn signals were clear but sprayed with a translucent spry on the inside to blacken them out. Not too much as the amber lights still need to be seen.

    Look close at the wind sheild frame it's now metallic grey instead of silver, same w/ the gas tank filler cap.

    Sorry for the multiple post, bu I can only figure out how to post one pict at a time

    There is no way I would put it on the wind shield as it goes on very thin (i.e. possible runs) and the optical quality would suck. I sprayed 2 or three coats on the inside of the clear lenses. Didn't want to put more on it as it would be to dark to see the lights flashing. I purchased it from a guy on ebay. I'll have to look at the can to see what brand it is.
