Question about 1996 BMW R 100 GS
The first thing to check is the lever throw. Have you bent the shift lever to where is is hitting the frame when you put it in 1st gear. I have seen this before to where the lever is bent downward & it hits the exhaust pipe or the frame & you can not put it in 1st gear properly. If this is not the situation then there may be something wrong in the tranny. Maybe a shifting fork (which is rare) be bent.

Has the oil been changed since you got it back out on the road? An oil change might help flush any accumulated "crumb" out of your tranny.
