and I have also DONE it

Went to see the good people at bvm moto and they offered me a good deal to trade my 98 1100GS against an ADV..........mulled it over for 10 days......my existing bike does everything I want it to and that I need it to...... but it was no good .........the total lack of logic that makes some of us buy a new bike when we already own a perfectly good one already got hold of me and it is ordered:
Black (Slower than silver but better looking)
Black Seat
Black Engine
ABS
Grips
Bars
Tourances
Clear indicators
Alarm/Immobiliser
I will fit existing luggage and an Aeroflow screen
I HOPE that is it for a while though doubtless someone here will point out that I need extra lights and a silver motorbike for riding over 50 mph on motorways etc etc

My theory at present in my search for justification is that I will keep it a long time and look after it........you know .....all that crap
anyhow really looking forward to climbing on it in a week or so.....I am having a hard time finding anyone who does not like their ADV......so thankyou gentlemen.....I've just spent a fortune.......mainly thanks to all of you

Tell me what I have forgotten to order......

And there you have it... LIGHTS!

RANT ON> Any motor manufacturer that can turn out any vehicle with lights as bad as an 1150GS ought to be :shoot: ..Slowly!
Stupid, irresponsible penny pinching TWATS! <RANT OFF
 
Gauloises you have asked a question which I don't know the answer to.....I wasn't asked to choose.....so i guess I'm having the standard box .....can you spell out the differences and explain if one type of box is a special factory order (My bike was not built to order from the factory)
Cheers
 
"can you spell out the differences and explain if one type of box is a special factory order"

According to the very helpful chap at Rydales, the Adventure now comes with an "Enduro" first gear as standard, but if you wish you can have a higher geared first gear as an option- but I am not sure of the cost. The bike sounds good by the way!

I think that the higher 1st gear on my 1150 sucks.
I reckon it's a ploy to wear out the clutches faster :p

Yabbut that was 'cos they didn't want anyone to see it......spyplane ya see!!!

And it was ugly so they tried to hide it.

So there.



:p
 
Yep............But........

It was still the fastest Fekkin beast in the Sky..............

I'm happy that us Black'un's can't be seen.........especially by Gatso's and the like.............;)

We're just to fast for the shutters to work............:D

Maybe if the BHT had been on a black'un, he wouldn't be in the position he finds himself in now, trying to avoid getting done for attempting to pervert the course of in-justice.........:D ....sorry, I meant Speeding...............

BTW

Didn't we do this already...........the Colour thing I mean........Black won didn't it.........Cause no one else could see us coming...;)

Don't think you'll need to waste money on a new screen, the ADV's is brilliant, I'm 6'3" and have know probs at all with it.....
 
Christian ,you were desperate for a used Aeroflow screen for an 1100.
I was only joking when I suggested you bought an 1150 to fit my one on.:D
guess that means someone will now offer you an 1100 aeroflow:D
