    But it’s not the best GS yet?

    Leaking front calipers

    Engine and internals faulty & having to be replaced

    TFT going AWOL

    It’s a pale imitation of earlier GS like the 1100 and 1150’s

    I want to change my vote from the 1200 to the 1100. Looks like they got the oil head right first time

    They did
    My new R1100GS was the only GS that I didn’t modify in any way whatsoever

    Spot on. The 1100 is a magnificent machine and if I had to choose just one bike to do everything, it would be a nicely sorted 1100GS.

    Even though I really like my 1200 TC, my vote was for the 1100 - if nothing else it’s the best looking GS IMHO.

    Strange isn’t it . I’ve had all the others from 1150 onwards but the one that got me thinking about having a GS was the the 11 when I saw them blasting around Berlin in 1997 .I can’t get enough of the 11 .

    My 1100 , purchased after my 1150 , was a better bike . I preferred the 5 speed box, but a few of things had been improved on my 1100 by the previous owner, superb MRS screen and tank deflectors, Corbin seat with removable back rest, online front and rear
