    How tall are you. If under 6' I would go for the non-adventure, if over 6' go for the adventure

    So nearly two years since I started this thread and a year since I finally bought a R1150GS (single spark) Thought I'd tell my findings.

    The 1150 is the better bike

    Theres not a lot in it performance wise, but with the 6 speed box with tall 6th gear the 1150 is not only a better motorway cruiser but as 5th gear is lower than the 1100's the 1150 is alot better on country roads.

    I always found on my 1100 on some A and most B roads I'd be constantly swapping from 5th to 4th gear, where as on the 1150 I can leave it in 5th and blat from corner to corner.

    And MPG is much improved my 1100 would average 42mpg my 1150 gets around 50mpg on the same roads.

    5' 11". Plus an inch or so with off-road boots on - does that count? My 15 year-old son just passed the 6' 1" mark around xmas... Maybe he'll inherit his dad's GS someday...

    Tiring myself out thinking too much about it. I'll be happy to go for the best 1100 or 1150 that comes up for the best price when my time comes.

    Bought a 1100 as it was cheaper than any 1150's I could find. Although I have never ridden an 1150 I would say mine is better
