All I can say is this...

There weren't that many total bikes in this years BMW MOA Concours but at least three of them were very, very pretty K-1s and compared to the other bikes, they really looked great.

I rode one when they were new and I really didn't think that they were that special. Now, if you stuffed in one of the New K-bike engines it would be special in spades but the bike was a victim of it's time. Kind of underpowered, heat was a problem and you couldn't turn the damn thing for shit but the question today is about collectability and I think that that bike is one of the stars of the future.

As I've said about some other Beemers: If you want one, buy it now!
