History
Got it when it came out as the last 1150, limited model before the switch to the 1200 engines. Will never sell.
Been in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Monaco, Korsika, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, BeNeLux, Pyrenees, the entire Alps 100 times, Kroatia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary. And counting!

One technical issue so far: a busted rear wheel-bearing in year 18.


The scary traverse: Tunnel de Parpaillon from WW1. South-West France. 1710ft of
unlit, mud-iced surface, partly tumbling ceiling with see-through vistas to the sky...
Attempted 6 times, made it through 4 times so far, 2 failed attempts due to snow&ice.
A real adrenaline-kicker.

Who says these are too heavy? Massive avalanche conquered, with 6 GS bikes.

Knobby tires on a GS will take you anywhere...

so many choices to go... look up “Sella Ronda“ in the Dolomites/Italy and do at least a google flyover!
