Just got a beautiful K1100LT (1995, Morea Green, 42,000 miles).

I've had a couple of K100's in the past but this is my first K1100.

My other ride is a 1989 Harley Softail; they're quite a contrast Hello, from Nottingham, UK ~ 2thumbup

Any other riders 'round the East Mids..? Give us a shout... Thanks!

David ~

Hi Bob, this one was *briefly* on eBay, until I 'reserved' it Wink

But it has the 'Special Edition' seat, in black, which is too 'stepped' for my liking.

You can't really shift about in it, it locks you into one riding position.

I may experiment with a standard saddle...

Good idea David!  Before the autumn turns into typical UK winter.
Any thoughts on a date and venue?  If not can I suggest Jacks Hill Cafe at Towcester?
This could end up being the best welcome for a K100 Forum newbie yet!
Regards
Nigel

Best bet is to pick a time and date and put something up on the European rides section - if you ask, they may come (or they may not). 

Jacks' is only about 130 miles from me...so a doddle for a day trip. It would be great to meet some of the Midland Krew (if you pick your day carefully, you might even get the mighty midlander Side Car Paul along...but he usually has a very busy weekend camping/riding schedule).

As epitomised by the Irish Eccentric and the Aussie Krew gatherings, there is nothing to fear from meeting strangers on a K. Nor is the organisation particularly tough - just have a well defined meeting point (and time), perhaps an idea of a local scenic route to enjoy for a ride out and a suitable watering hole for some coffee and grub. 

Hope to see a ride post soon....

If it's good, I'll post a ride up in the correct Section.

This could be the first meet of the Midlands K Klan..!
