Hello all,

I gave in and sold my Triumph Speed Triple and bought something more "passenger friendly". I like to go on short trips with the wife, but the Triumph limited us to a couple hundred kilometers a day.

Purchased a 1991 K100RS with 21,000miles on it. Sat in a garage in California for a long time and needed some love.

Finishing restoring the bike so that I can get Collector's Status from the insurance provider; much cheaper for insurance as long as I promise not to ride it to work.

I am looking forward to becoming a contributing member of the forum, instead of just gleaning all the great information available here.

Welcome Tfreeze. I'm a fan of the RS models too. Perhaps we'll cross paths someday at the BC Beemers rally in Nakusp?

Good to have another Kanuck and another wet coaster on the forum. Greetings from an RS, Collector plate Islander.

Thanks for greetings.

One of the reasons I bought the bike was how popular these bikes seem to be in their "old age". I am looking forward to getting involved in the local BMW rider community.

I have only ridden it 300 miles so far, and it is a vastly different drive than any of the bike I have owned before. The turn signals still require more concentration than I am used to.

Hi Tfreeze welcome to the Knuthaus. I have been riding bricks now for 10 years and am sure I will never like the indicator switches they just seem to be counter intuitive.
