  1. My "normal" ride day is about 300 miles for my Tiger, serious off-road rides are about 40 miles (single track). I prefer to sneak off on weekdays so the traffic is much lower. I have frequently done over 500, but realistically, after 400, it is just to get where you're going, not enjoying the ride. I recently did about 4000 miles across Labrador, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, where we averaged about 350 per day. Some days that was too much, some days too short, but we also busted out about 600 in transit one day. I like hitting diners and out of the way spots, following the road less traveled.

    It's great bike with a lot of features and ready to ride. A few choice accessories makes it even better. I am very pleased with the power, performance and handling of the motorcycle. It flicks like a sport bike but rides off road easily too. I am very pleased and looking forward to many more miles.
  3. Hi, I am interested in getting back into BMW ownership. I found a nice looking, clean R1150GS with about 55k miles on it locally. It has handguards, heated grips and panniers (nothing fancy, black plastic) and looks to be in good shape. The price is right, but I haven't owned a Beemer in over 20 years and that was an early 80's model. What are some the primary concerns or things I should look at? I plan to ride it a lot, and would like some insight into the longevity of the beast. I will hit some minor trails, but I prefer the standard style riding position to the cruiser style. I do ride off road on dedicated machines, so this won't be my only ride.
