    '94 R1100GS - thinking of purchase

    Hey Guys,

    Lots of experience with K and Airheads, have never owned an Oilhead... looking at a fairly high mileage R1100GS - 108k miles. It seems well taken care of and in good shape, ABS, heated grips, luggage and two brothers exhaust.

    Any opinions to the good, bad and ugly of these bikes and what resources are there to understand what I should be looking at for weaknesses?

    PO said spine was maybe an issue, said that was taken of. As well tranny, but says it shifts well.

    As well, how do they perform off road with aggressive tires? Thinking double track forest roads, is it more capable than the R100GS?
