Dartmanok, congrats. I have a 2002 ABS (black) I bought new about 3 1/2 years ago. It's been a great bike. I've done many 8-12 hour days in the
(stock) saddle with no problems, and a 15 hour shot from the MOA last July, stopping only for gas (and traffic.....). Here's what I've done to it:
Kisan Signal minder SM-5 (worth its weight in gold)
Run' N' Lights LED flashing brake lights below license tag
BMW System Cases w/ Applied Graphics reflective decals
Wunderlich Engine protection bars
PIAA 1100X aux lights
Givi V46 Top Case custom-mounted to BMW RR/KRS Mounting plate which locks to bike. See pics: http://www.r1150r.org/board/viewtopi...ghlight=#19510
XM Radio (Roady2)
Valentine 1 Radar
Garmin Quest GPS
Wunderlich Bar Backs
T-Bag "Universal Helmet Bag"
BMW battery Tender
And of course my EZ Pass toll tag (zip tied to my front fork)
If you're gonna change your own oil you'll need the BMW oil head filter wrench also.
I MAY be trading the R in for a new R1200ST, if I do I'll be unloading the above goodies. Keep checking the "Buy/Sell" forum on R1150R.org. I've got the same handle/avatar on that forum.
Welcome aboard and good luck.
