GS common glitches? R1100R transmission fail.
I bought a '96 R11000r this past spring. Love the bike. Rode the Blue Ridge PKWY to the Tail of the Dragon and did the Lake Michigan Loop this summer. One problem. The bike transmission started skipping in 3rd gear. Only 50k on the bike. I have read that this is a common glitch with this bike and am hesitating to plunk down $2-3k on a bike that only cost me $3500. SO, while riding down some gravel roads in the Michigan U.P., I was wishing I had a GS and figured what the hell, let's pick up a used one. I was hoping that someone out there might be aware of any similar problem with the GS BEFORE I buy and thus geta repair bill that will be more than the bike is worth. Thanks folks!!
