Filippo’s  BMW R1150 GS

Filippo und die BMW R1150 GSActually, Filippo’s R1150 GS is not only one motorcycle, but two! How does this work? Well, on the one hand there is the first machine, which Filippo bought in 1999 new. In the meantime it has covered 180 000 km. And that is where the second GS comes into play. This motorcycle is from 2003, and had 40000 km on the clock when we left. And now, two become one: some special parts and adjustments will be transferred from the first to the second GS, such as the 21” front wheel, the 30-liter fuel tank, the lowered exhaust, and other parts.
