I thought this was going to be about these "K-bikes!"

... get me in trouble, east high, but I guess it's my own fault, ha!

I loaned it to my wife, Cary, and she dumped it on a bumpy, downhill, foggy stretch of the Lost Coast at fairly low speed ... She picked it up and rode it home 300 miles (after Kalle helped her fix the shifter with a couple of hose clamps and an Allen wrench) ...

As I'm sure you know, they don't crash too well ... ground through the valve cover and fairing, which is what the land on ...


The guilty party ...


Kalle fixing the snapped shifter ...

Fun times!

See you around the campfire,

I have 2 marrakesh red K75s bikes (88 and 91). The BMW colour code is 643. They are the colour of SFMC John13's machine.
I also have a red 87 that looks that copppery color but only on the top. Sun fade as the belly pan and rad shroud are red but not that red. BMW colour code 575.
Hope that helps.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

Found this one on ebay

I was drinking. I was on the computer. I searched BMW on ebay. I bid a ridiculously low $1300 and ended up with this.

This maybe one of the best K buys I've every heard of short of inheritence. Usually they look just as good from the outside but are rotten from the inside out. I bought my first K75 with 19K miles for $1500 in Arizona but spent another $3K making her safe and worthy. I put another $1500 in making her pretty. Congrats....a amazing bike. Maybe I should have been drinking like you..... But in the end, it was a beautiful bike. Congrats and ride safe.
