R850GS for two up
Hello, I´m looking into buying a bike for touring with my girlfriend, and am considering a 1999 BMW R850GS to do it. Reason being I can´t stretch my budget to a 1150, Varaderos aren´t really appealing, and 1100 seem to have gone to Mars and back.
I weight 95kg naked, she weights about 70kg, plus luggage, will we be OK using an R850GS? I´ve done a lot of miles on a 650 Transalp but never with a passenger, for solo riding the Transalp was enough for me. We did take a DL650 for a 250km spin on country roads the other day and found the power adequate (no luggage).
Bike will be used to visit Morocco, sticking to tarmac or smooth surfaces, and to tou Europe.
