The trip reports are looking very swanky these days, Chris. Very professional.

Why don't you organise the left frame alphabetically to make it easier to find specific journeys?

I'm off on my forthcoming 3rd 1150GS entry this coming month. Just a short one from the UK to the Baltic countries and back.

See you at the HU UK meet?

Great site.
Stephan

"Very professional."

that should give you a clue - it wasnt me who did it but a webheaded mate. Every time I upload more I have to re-read the instructions.

I believe the left frame is latest on top which I think is handier - the titles I like to make up would not always help locate a journey.

Another eleven reports and the 1150s take the lead (though realistically of course the GS series leads the pack by miles).

Hello.
This is all good news to me considering i'm the proud owner of an '89R100gs/pd and in the process of a frame-up re-build. Besides re-building the transmition and heads, the bikes in good shape after 80000+ miles already.
Great books Chris! Look foreward to meeting you one day.
