Just wanted to introduce my new-to-me ride. '88 K100RT.
Picked her up about 6 weeks ago in Newcastle as an unregistered non-starter with just 84K klm on the clock and shod with a set of brand new Speed Demons.

Pump etc had gone to goo. After cleaning the tank out, I replaced the pump, vibe damper, pump mounting, filter, hoses and fuel sender.

She still wouldn't fire up so I pulled the injectors for a good clean and new kit. Two of them were not firing.

She then fired up easy as, and ran very sweet. So sweet in fact that I named her Sweet Caroline.


On Sunday 25 September Sweet Caroline and I will be participating in the Sydney Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. This is a worldwide fundraising event supporting research into men's prostate cancer. If you'd like to contribute, follow the link above.
I know there are other fundraisers promoted by members here but all I suggest is that you get behind at least one of them.
Ed's Blue Boxer event as well as a collection for research into the cancer that recently took our dear friend RossKKo.

There have been many members here who have received help with their rides. That's gotta be worth even just a few dollars towards research into men's health.

I'll be posting updates and pics as I get closer to the DGR day.

Cheers

Nice one Nigel - you've been having a severe dose of the Kpox lately but great to see that you are amassing a sweet kollection. Looks like another beautiful bike has been rescued from oblivion.

Thanks. She's a pretty clean machine. Looks like she's been garaged most of her life and would be the most pristine original condition K100 I've ever seen.
Rear seal and steering head bearings need replacing plus a few stone chips but all the plastic is in near perfect condition.

Jolly good show KKlomps old chap!
I've just raided my son's wardrobe and found some pretty spiffy threads to wear.

Thanks all for the sweet comments.

Dai... I feel the same way. I just love and prefer riding my 1100RS.

For you Smithy...... cheers

That one is really nice.

Unlike my fellow Eccentric a little further north of me I am a fan of the RT/LT especially the fairing and ride position. Thishas very muchto do with the fact that rainfall where I am is over double that of where Dai lives. Naked bikes down here are in my mind as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike. But in Dai's patch naked would be king. Managed 2,000 miles in last 3 weeks in conditions from great sunshine to torrential downpours and wouldn't swap it. Currently looking at adding another RT.

I did all of 20 miles in car in the same time and that was because I needed to get felt and some 8 foot wood battens. Something to do with a possible new arrival......My Tardis hasn't yet managed to cope with that lot.

I dunno.
