BMW R1150GSA ADVENTURE
This is a page about my R1150GS Adventure. I think this bike will be with me for the rest of my life. I hope so anyway. I also had a KLR650 and I can honestly say there's one real way to make a KLR feel a lot more nimble. Ride an R1150GSA first!
Enjoy the pics, stories and articles. If you have anything to contribute please by all means, let me know! I have a feeling I'm going to go absolutely nuts on this bike. I can't wait to begin the mods and there's a really long list of them to tackle already!
I bought this bike in Virginia and flew down to ride it back to my home outside Detroit, Mi. Believe it or not, my wife bought it for me on Mothers Day. Can you believe that? Awesome eh! My wife ROCKS!
Yeah, I still can't get over it. I'm wondering what she's gonna want for Fathers Day.
Well. I thought I would never give this bike up. Unfortunately - it was a tad too tall for me.
Sold it in August 2011
These are some pics of my own bike.
I've been to Hell!
