WOOHOO!!!! I got it, I got it, I got it!!!
Sorry for my abject, overly enthusiastic display of sheer joy, but I just had to share it with my sportbike brethren. I just picked up my semi-new, BMW R1150GS and I'm deep into the honeymoon phase of ownership. I am in hock up to my eyeballs, but I don't care. This bike is the weirdest looking thing on two wheels, but it's beautiful. It does everything with such a fluid-like response, it's like it drives itself. The best part is the deal I got. It was a 2000 with only 890 miles on it, and about $4500 worth of accessories (full luggage, titanium exhaust, sissy bar, bar risers, hand guards and the break-in maintenance done 20 miles ago). The guy who orginally bought it , picked it up in May, tricked it out, broke it in, then traded it in for the F650 Dakar, God bless him! I got it for $600 under what it would have been stock, no bells and whistles! I just hope my SuperHawk doesn't get jealous. Anyway, I hope I don't come off like I'm bragging, I just wanted to share this feeling with all of you. I know you've all been there too. Aaaah, all is right with the world again! I love you guys...
