For some reason they are both Red
« on: April 20, 2017, 08:10:16 PM »
I didn't plan it that way, just seemed to happen.  Here is my newer 1995 BMW R1100RS. I bought it about 9 years ago with 11k miles on it. Now it is sporting about 178k No major engine work, but to many sets if tire to count. Still on it first clutch. Here we are at a little photo shoot in Alaska. Dad and I rode from Dayton Ohio. 8 days to get there 12 days to get back.

That's fantastic! I like the RS11000 like yours but read too many stories on clutch spline failures. Forums are full of stories on this issue.It seems some bikes were effected and some not.Repairing is costly 3k almost cost of the bike.
Anyway enjoy it

At this point I'd think you're out of the woods on the clutch spline failure issue. Maybe one day I'll get the total of all my bikes up to that mileage.   nice1
