Nothing definite yet. Still contemplating the purchase of the 1986 R80.

I'm looking at a 2004 R1100S this morning. This isn't the bike but it looks like this . . .

Man, your all over the board.
Maybe you need to talk about what tool you need to do the job you have in mind.

The S was a cool bike, the resale on them is in the tank now as they dropped in popularity when they quit making them.

You can get (I think ) bar risers to make them a bit more upright, Corbin may still make a seat for comfort.
Take a good long test ride if it has the aftermarket exhaust .your butt cheeks will likely get roasted .

These had problems (some) in time with the Hall sensor like the RT did. So since it's a known issue there's no mystery if it happens. Ditto with the stick coils.
I have a factory service manual for a 2004 I was going to ebay .ihave a spare set of stock brake rotors on there now.

SAME QUESTION . how many miles ?

What he said.

And then if it looks good, not too much money and time to
do baseline service/tires/brake lines/etc.
Would be a like/better than new ride
:cough: shocks emoji:
nice color scheme, IMO, yes.
One of the better old ( no offense please) bikes out there.
You can set it up so many ways.
I've ridden sport toureres with bags, bigger screen, bar backs.
Really sweet.
Enjoy


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

Great choice. I put over 50K on my '04 1100S in the three years I had it. Loved that bike except that it is not great for 2 up.

Thanks.

My days of 2-up riding and long-distance touring are in my past. Been there, done that. Nowadays (I'm retired) it's just 2-3 short morning rides each week.
