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

    [​IMG]

    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.

    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, :1drink

    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.

    Thanks Jeremy. The K75 has the smoothest engine of all the brick K's. I've owned three and am considering another ( K75RT ).

    Quick question -

    I had to perform an on the street battery swap on my 92K 100 (abs) RS today, the old battery wasn't starting in the cold, and it had been sitting for 3 plus weeks on the street while I was away for business. (no trickle charger).

    So charged up an exact replacement (Odyssey PC680) and swapped them. Wow, forgot how annoying it was to change the battery in this K, having to remove the ABS brain and un-plug that massive connector cable etc.

    Put it all back together, started right up, checked all the ABS connections, etc. But the ABS lights now flash constantly, even after the over 5 mph rolling test (always did that).

    What did I do to make the brain read fault, was it just unplugging battery? How do I re-set?

    TIA:D
