Found this acronym in a an advertisement for the sale of a 1985 K100RT. Is this malarkey or was the 1985 K100 RT officially recognized as the "Finest Year K".

Not an official name but fairly widely recognized acronym.

85 US hot the "hotter" eurocams which were supposedly detuned in 86 and later years to make the socialist greeners in California happy with the emissions. The eurocams gave slightly higher power at higher RPMs if memory serves.

85 was also the first year K100s were sold in the US.

Yes, it's all true. My 1985 K100RS is the finest model BMW ever produced.... Razz
It even has a high performance fuel cap. But, let's not discuss removing the throttle bodies and related intake bits for maintenance.

Yes, definitely tongue-in-cheek.
