Hi all, while I've been in motorcycling since 1978, I've not had a BMW until 18 months ago (R1100RT). I sold that this past spring and went for a K75RT - and it feels just right. I know this is a K100 forum, but so many things are in common that I wanted to join. I know there's much I can learn - and maybe, just maybe a few things I can contribute.

Looking forward to tinkering and riding my new bike.

Chuck

Cheers

G'day Chuck your K75 is more than welcome in our little Korner of the worldweb.
The 75s have the smoothest engines

Welcome Chuck. Quite a few here have a K75 in some form or another.

Welcome, Chuck.

I'm very happy with my K100RT but I wish I had a K75 too.

Cheers,

Bill

Welcome Chuck! I just bought my second 75, a '94 S model, to keep my RT kompany in the garage. Sweetest bikes I've ever ridden.

Welkome Chuck,

A very good choice of bike. Parts commonality covers most things and some of the major sources of spares are Motobins and Motorworks in the UK and EME for electriks in the US.

I think you will find that more than a few of the K100 owners secretly hanker after a 75.

Cheers, Dave.

I'll second that. Had a chance to ride a K75 for a few weeks earlier this year... Nice machine.
