Anyone using a Throttle Rocker?
Talking about Bobs wrist rest or a Throttlemeister cruise control?

The wrist rest is an invaluable upgrade for 10$ or so.

That's silk blue, a predecessor to Capri. I bought a '94 LT in that color new with a $2k rebate from BMW for MOA members as they pushed hard in December to sell a whole 3,000 bikes in the US that year. Beautiful color, great bike.

You should jump on that Blake. I think the K75 is one of the best bikes any body ever built.

I agree the bike is bulletproof and has great lines, but it need more hp...it's a bit punchless.

I prefer the 4-banger version of the brick engine.
