BMW pioneered the ‘adventure-bike’ market back in the 80s with the R80GS. Several years later, BMW released the R100GS as an update to their trailblazing bike. Here we have one of the later R100GS models, a 1994, in the popular “Bumblebee” paint scheme – though it is missing the delightfully 80s-styled decals.
Many riders consider this to be the best of the GS series, as there’s less to go wrong. While stories of final drive failures in the Oilheads may be overblown, the 80/100GS series never had any severe faults to worry about.
This is a particularly clean example, with 40,000 miles and a recent service. As long as you have decent records of maintenance, 40k miles is insignificant on these motors.
Extras include new front and rear Progressive suspension and new Heidenau dual-sport tires. The price is a little higher than I’ve seen for similar bikes, but in this case you’re paying for a bike that seems to be in excellent shape.
