I'm trying to decide whether I want to look for and buy an older R100GS or a newer R1150GS. Most riding will be done on pavement with probably the odd fire trail or gravel road thrown in. My budget will probably be around $6k.
I love the idea of the R100GS being lighter (they certainly are easier to push if need be) and simpler for maintenance. There also just seems to be a heavy appeal any airhead has to me.
I know the R1150GS will have better brakes and be more refined for long freeway travel (which I intend to do plenty of). I worry about them being a tad overly complex to work on myself though.
Any thoughts or advice?
