I got myself a 4 valve K100 RS last year and have been enjoying its charms and challenges! I'm your typical born again biker having used a bike for all transport, including a 50+ mile commute for many years and all seasons. Marriage and children meant a lay off and the K is my toe back in the game.

Hi Ya Sniffy, when you get a K you put your whole foot in the right camp. You'll never need anything else.

I'm not sure I'd class you as born-again if you put all those miles on previously - most BABs are in their midlife crisis. There's plenty of help available here and all freely given.

Thanks for the welcome. Point taken on the born again thing, I'm much more likely to be found in a Belstaff Trialsmaster than something with a Manga character on the back, but each to their own. My helmet sports a pair of Halcyon goggles, so you can see how set in my ways I am.

Hiya sniffy.............nice to have another Yorkshireman for company.

I also returned to biking after a long lay off with an impulse purchase of a 1985 K100RT. This is a great forum with loads of friendly members and limitless advice on K maintenance and problems. Maybe see you on the Yorkshire roads one day.

I visit friends in Cork once a year, but haven't yet made the trip on a bike. I should remedy that situation.

Excellent idea.

Last time a guy said that to me turned out I knew the friends over here quite well. We have a good scattering of Ks around the country and always up for a meet up!
