The winshield came with the bike. The previus owner was 6'4" or so. I am 6'2". In that pic it is up all the way, as I just finished washing the bike. I usually ride with it at 50%. Also it is a Cee Bailey aftermarket, tall as it is wide. Works great for me along with the Day Long Saddle.

Two for the price of one
This is a pic of the twins. I've had my RS for about 5 yrs. One of the guys at work mentioned he would like to have one, soooo I actually found one on CL, we went to look at it, and he bought it. Mine's a 94, his is a 95. Mileage about the same on both, around 40k. I helped him replace the master cylinder, put new brake pads on and change oil and fluids. This winter I'll teach him how to adjust the valves and sync the TB's. But first, we ride!
BTW, mine is the red one, the fastest color of course........

Trips like that ARE the adventure in adventure riding.

A great fall ride with a special friend!
Here is my best ever bike, a 94 R1100RS, now with 143,000 on the clock and still going strong. I guess I must really like this bike to still be riding it after almost 15 years!

Nice bike Andy! I have a red '94 RSL. The resale on these bikes is not good, so I am hanging onto mine. Love it , and it is better and more trouble free than a new one. And paid for!

Thanks! That's exactly how I feel, my RS has been paid for for over 12 years! But I have kept changing it in subtle ways to keep it fresh, like engine and exhaust mods. The occasional $300 spent on good qulaity mods is cheap compared to e abunch of payments. But, I got frustrated with the fuzzy view from the stock mirrors. So I found a nice set of salvaged 600 GSXR mirrors, made some simple brackets to fit inside the fairing, and monted the mirrors with stem extensions from Twisted Throttle.
They are MUCH more clear, and further ahead in my field of view. I also made my own handlebar, mounted using one bolt clamp mounts from a GZ250, to raise the grips up and back about 2".
RS riders... ride on!! I have my 94 R1100RS and still have my 76 R100RS (serial number 414). The RS has always seemed to be the best BMWs.

Got my first BMW last week, a 2000 R1100R. Modifications thus far are mostly cleaning and a matching blue tour jacket.
