    R100GS / HPN #819

    Hi all! I really need your help, but first I want to introduce you to my lifetime dream, it finally came true. After saving years and years I found a used but almost new R100GS modified by HPN (Frame Number #819). I own the bike a few days now, drove already 1.000km / 600mi and I just can't stop smiling. Some specifics: R100GS build in 1990 in Spandau, Berlin (just like all BMW Motorcycles) in 2012 the bike was rebuild by HPN in Seibersdorf, Bavaria the engine is from a R100R, its not spectacular (for me it still is), the engine is not tuned, its completely original. I will think about it, but I dont need more than 60hp offroad, and I want a engine as much durable as possible, thats my main goal here same goes for the front double discs, they are from the same R100R the R100R parts now ran 13.000km / 8.000mi, the R100GS parts got about 28.000km on the clock strengthen frame by HPN and modified to hold a centered rear shock front fork is a White Power USD 48mm with 250mm travel HPN Triple clamp to hold the fork rear shock Öhlins with 220mm travel (seat height 880mm, 1580mm from wheel to wheel) the cardan shaft is one of a R1150GS (no rear disc, i still have drums there) 43 litres HPN Poly, painted HPN mask and HPN cockpit long 5th gear (5% longer), normal first gear (its under consideration to shorten it 5%) muffler and the stainless steel rear end from Gletter (i just like the optics better than the HPN parts) The complete invoice is four pages long, I'm only listing the important things. The HPN weights about 185-195kg (420 pounds), so lost already some of her weight. On my To-Do list: skidplate (maybe 8mm from SWT Sports i need to talk to the guy) hand guard protection (maybe I can find the original HPN ones which where produced by Acerbis to my knowledge) maybe other footpegs to have a better standing, paired with some handlebar raisers a roadbook and a training to learn how to handle it out in the world crash bars if they do more good than harm the bike So, why do I need ur help? Does not every bike has a nickname? Any ideas for mine? I will create a Top10 list from all suggestions and at the end I'll let you decide what name he or she will get. All the best, Rob
