Thanks. I think the R1100S is a gorgeous bike regardless of paint job.

Yes I did. I don't do any long distance riding any more. Just short morning rides 2-3 times a week. (I'm retired.) So, I immediately took the saddle bags off and boxed them for storage.

The bike is completely stock and only has 5300 miles.

Great looking bike! Enjoy, but it is a great long distance ride. I am retired also but plan to ride to Washington state and Texas from Arkansas later this year. I have my second 04 R1100S, great bikes and easy to service. I would recommend doing a full service on it depending on when the last one was completed. It appears to have ABS so i would do a full system brake flush including the ABS unit under the tank. You can make or purchase from www.beemerboneyard.com, the funnel to service the ABS unit. I got my second R1100S with 27000 miles, so I did an oil service, brake flush, put on Spiegler brake lines, flush the clutch system, changed plugs, checked brake pads and anything else I could think of.

No need. It's there.




Sorry ... on an 1100S, the "powerlet" port is mounted on the rear side of the main frame just where the rear subframe attaches. It you have something on your starter motor cover, it's a lug for jump starting and it's only a positive.

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.
