The BMW R100GS has a proud lineage winning the Paris-Alger-Dakar Rally in 1983, 84 & 85. In 2008 I was working offshore in Brazil when I found out about this bike located in Ft. Collins, Colorado. I contacted the dealer and made a purchase that day. Upon returning to the States I flew to Colorado to pick her up, we bonded during the next 16 days and 6905 miles in a round about ride back to the Blue Ridge of Virginia. We visited numerous National Parks and made a run to the summit of Pikes Peak. I've made some upgrades and still find this a very capable bike on or off the tarmac.
