I can't really explain it. Here I am a 53 year old guy that has ridden and raced sports bikes since I was in my teens, and there is something just
so incredibly soothing/peaceful about the boxer engine. It has a character to it like no other engine.
And I've been sampling a fair amount of the 1100 line. I bought a 2000 RT in 2012...it was totaled in a parking lot 6 months later and I bought the 94 RS. I liked the RS but wasn't in love with it so I did a straight swap for an SCCA Miata.
Like I said, 6 months later I missed the hell out of the boxer engine. I'm just now starting to feel confident about how much I can really throw the GS around
and it is just a hoot! I rode in today, mid 40's pouring rain and guess what...I don't care!!
I'm having too much fun!
2001 Ducati Monster; 1996 R1100GS; 1985 RZ350; 1977 RD400
Now that's great. Just the way it should be. Enjoy the Boxer. Enjoy the GS. Post pictures.
Before and after; previous owner had lowered it with 385mm torque arm and Works suspension. I put Ohlins front and back and a flightengineering adj torque arm. Now its ass is back up in the air

My new to me RT,,,,
The pursuit of reality at all cost.
With spring arriving soon, please prepare yourselves for a resumption of pictures depicting a certain R1100S in all its finery. You should brace for an attack of envy and jealousy.

Especially pictures under their bikes covers.
