Looks like I forgot to post a pic of mine and have just been looking at the bikes here.



This is a couple of years ago. New Corbin with backrest now and lots of stickers on the bags... Lights etc.

85 K100RS with a Honda Hurricane front end and an F2? front wheel.
200? R1100RS rear wheel. Turbo kit. Superbike bars.
It is a fun bike and hits corners better than the tall skinny stock tires.
Turbo will lift the front.

Like all the bikes here.

K bike love

I have K lov.
Have owned '04 KGT, and '91 K75S.
Currently own '86 K100RS, restored with t*rbo (can be seen on K100froum under restorations), and '87 K100RS Motorsport. Both machines run like beasts, are beautiful, and are classically modern.
I salivate for a K1, but need one like a lobotomy.
Here's to you K bike lovers,

Peter

Link did not work, so here's Johnny! Or rather a photo of my '93 K75S. Nice rider but needs new tires. I have been riding my R80RT until I put new rubber on the K. This is my third K75. And, my second S model. The first was the same without ABS. Smoothest bike I have ever owned.



And here is meself with the K.



And, one more. The K bike is a good medium distance tourer. Of course it'll go farther. I have traveled and camped quite a lot with this one as I do with all my bikes.
