1998 BMW R 1100 GS review
Probably one of the most underestimated bikes on Earth.
Review of the R 1100 GS submitted on 2004-11-07.
Corners the same level or even better than new VFR on mountain passes because of itīs low centre of mass, does twisties better than competitiors - Tiger, V-Strom, Caponord, Varadero. Gravelroad master - very stable on even high speeds, telelever technology front suspension and ABS brakes does itīs job well and curve capable on open rocks indeed. Has huge amounts of torque on low rpms - the one-and-only BMW boxer engine, thus you donīt need to change gears much, it just pulls you on every rpm scale. Maintanance intervals are relatively long, very simple and reliable engine to do all the work yourself - cheap to maintain (opposite to most people opinions - BMWs are expensive to maintain - wrong)!
