Looks like a K100 frame with 4-valve K12 engine/drivetrain.
Went for a day ride up the mountain loop hwy in W Washington. Was the first time with the soft luggage, brother's first ride that day on gravel with his SV650.:eek1 Great day in PNW, NO RAIN!
is a BMW K100 RS 16V (Bj. 1990). The engine is original but the rear rims is from the BMW K1200 RS
My latest folly.
Congratulations on the new bike and entry to street riding. Certainly looks like you made a great choice in bike and gear! Here's to many happy miles and smiles!
I appreciate the warm welcome, thank you! So far, the bike has been flawless and the gear seems to be working! It was kind of hilarious riding a CBR250R single in a group that included a GS1150, an R1200RT, an R1200C, a Harley Police Special, and an ST1100! I was probably less comfortable (but not uncomfortable) on the highways but once we hit the hairpins I was in high cotton! It was also kind of cool that during rest breaks, people - usually BMW guys - would come over to chat and check out the little sportbike. I think most people were kind of surprised that a quarter liter could keep up with the liter+ bikes while hauling around a 200-pound rider plus two saddlebags and a couple of DrySpec tailpacks. I guess it's all about a different approach to riding: conserve momentum; work the six-speed aggressively to keep the rpm in the powerband; don't hesitate to use a lot of throttle, anticipate any "need for speed" and build it up a little earlier than the rest of the crew. Even running the pants off the motor though, I was getting between 69-80 mpg, yielding a range of 200+ miles on the 3.4 gallon tank.
That looks fantastic!

Meet an interesting fellow at the Chehaw Mt. state park a couple of weeks ago. He was Swiss and has been living in the US since the 1980. We both had the same first bikes:50 cc Puchs made in Austria. His English was very good with a mixture of N. Alabama and Swiss accent.
