Hi Guys !

My name is Amaia from Switzerland and I bought a BMW K100 RS from 1985 in April 2015 with the aim to learn motorbikes mechanics. So I first started to evaluate the "health" of the bike and once I replaced different parts I started to do some cosmetic modification. I will say that "its almost done" but I do still have some electrical problems to finish it...

So and the end I will like to build kind of Mad Max / Cafe racer bike.

I believe that this forum will be very helpful for fixing some issues, great exchange pool,...

I'm also a happy owner of a Triumph Bonneville from 2014. But that's another story...

Cheers.

Hello Amaia,

Welcome from the warm part of the globe. I was briefly in Switzerland last year and always enjoy the beauty of the place, especially from the seat of a K.

Fond memories of Luzern, although bike maintenance meant I stayed there longer than necessary. Laughing

Cheers, Dave.

Thank you chocolate! I am trying to replace the huge cluster in the bike now Smile

TacKler so you came from Australia to Switzerland with your K ? I am sure that's a great adventure! Do you have a blog or something similar ?

Happy to be in the forum!

Welcome, Amaia from another Aussie.

I've made a couple of visits to Switzerland, but both in 4 wheels. Most recent was last March.

I'd love to ride there on a K, but not sure I'll get the opportunity.

Bill

Welcome Amaia!

Glad you got a 'K'.

I have a Swiss 'K' - a K31.

I just admire precision engineering...

Thank you guys ! I am really happy to become part of the K community Smile

I've been in Australia once and I will definitely love to ride once the Great Ocean Road by motorbike ! I spent 3 weeks and visited Melbourne and Victoria's greats parks, the red center and rented a van and went from Brisbane to Sydney. What a great country ! And Aussie's are really friendly !

Yes, Switzerland have great mountain roads and beautiful landscapes but we do have a long and cold winter... Can't wait to start the season ! But I need to fix some electrical issues before...

I am sorry Brad-Man but I am not a big fans of rifles... sorry. But I am a mechanical engineer and it's true that in Switzerland we do know how to produce precisions parts Smile

Best,

Sorry Amaia, no blog from the trip. Lots of photos and just memories of the wet and cold weather during this one.But the Furka Pass was open this time and one day I managed six passes above 2,000m.

I was fortunate in that Will generously loaned me his K75 from Ireland and I better stop here or I will have to start a blog.

Speaking of Swiss made rifles I do have a photo on my '91 trip on my K75S parked out the front of the Hammerli factory. I had a guided tour courtesy of the deputy manager (sorry Gaz). Growing up I remember the Marklin trains that my father had.
