the 80s K series BMWs broke ground. they shifted the paradigm and stirred up much dirt. no one believed it would last.
it was the first big step away from BMWs long hold on the old technology. away from Airheads. there were haters. doubters. nay-sayers. but BMW had it right, and today, the K series not only perseveres, but stands strong. the K is fast, fun in the twisties, stable on the Interstates, a great tourer, solid commuter. all around great bikes.
so let's see 'em.
Show Us Your Vintage K Pix. here's mine, a 1988 K100RS
with the Ohlins rear shock, Corbin seat, and Parabellum windscreen:
it is painted an official BMW color, the Dark Graphite- tho this color wasn't offered on a K back then. the original color of the bike was that funky brown. then it was painted some off color of blue by another owner... then i had it painted the color it is now... i probably have more money in paint alone than the bike is worth.
