Hi all.
I got my K100RS 1991 from a friend who was going on an extended trip around Australia. He had purchased it new in Germany and road it around Europe before bringing it home to Aus. It is my first road bike, I spent a lot of time on dirt bikes before I got married but the knees are a bit arthritic and the strength aint what it was back then so dirt bikes are out. It's a whole new learning curve but after about 10,00 K's of riding I am getting there. Absolutely love it actually. I have read some great posts here and got some very welcome help so thanks for that. Cheers.

Thanks to all for the welcome.

Yes Ed there are some great rides here. Mount Mee and Mount Glorious are great except everywhere there are decent twisties the have dropped the speed limit to 60K.

Welcome from Down under (well we could be ! North is North not necessarily up in cosmic terms Smile )

Nice clean looking RS and with the weather warming in the southern hemisphere I'm sure you'll make use of it!

Enjoy the forum.

Welcome Billy,

You may find that you are dangerously close to some real Knuts who think nothing of riding 1000's of km to share their knowledge, stories and kamaraderie. You'll struggle to find a better krew though.

Enjoy!

Another welkome from the Hunter Valley. When you get a chance to visit your rellos in Newcastle allow a bit of extra time for a meet up with the Krew around here.

Cheers
