I don’t have much time for blogging these days: weekdays are for work, and weekends are reserved for family business (<grin />) and motorcycle touring…

Who says you can’t go on a big motorcycle tour with a BMW R1100S ? Here’s proof that it can be done:

My admiration of the R1100S motorcycle should be clear to any reader of this blog. Even today, I think back to mine from day to day. If it weren’t for my back and hip issues, I would probably still own and ride it.

I’ve shown a picture of a similarly modified BMW R1100S before: street-fighter handlebars and a windscreen extension turn it into a different proposition.

And then wonder: why did I not convert mine to such a form, rather than trade it for the F800GT ? Well, there’s no use crying over spilt milk – but I would love to ride an R1100S with a street-fighter handlebars for a day or so!

More and bigger photos can be found in my Flickr stream – just click to go there

I hope the photos convey some of the pleasure I had during this trip.

A couple of years ago on this blog, I started publishing links to a wide variety of photos picturing the BMW R1100S. That was the bike I owned at the time. While revisiting the forum websites where I found most of these pictures, it became clear to me that even in 2018 the R1100S owners still take pride in their machines. So I’ll continue to tell you about the new pictures I found.
