Getting to know my new ride, a 91 K100LT.  Pretty happy with it so far.  Lots of character, good power in the top end.  Honked the horn a few times trying to cancel the signal though.  I've had many bikes including a '73 Bonnie 750, '79 KZ 1000 with shaft drive, and '81 Silverwing - which surprisingly was one of my favorites.  This is my first BMW.  In what other brand can you get a nearly 30 year old bike that has ABS and fuel injection, none.  Happy so far, just need to do a few tweeks to make it my own, and fully commit to it for the next decade or more - is the plan.  I appreciate this forum.  Happy riding.

Very Happy Yes like me its gonna be a work in progress. Glad you thinking long term ScottD.... I picked up my K75S more than a year ago and it has been a slow albeit enjoyable 'getting to know it'. Had my first roadside issue last weekend, ignition switch decided it had enough, but thankfully a fellow member of this forum helped me get back on the road the day after.

Keep at it, one part at a time and that bike will grow on you, and then she'll eventually be yours.  Laughing

Ahh Saskatoon.  That's where I went to when I left home in '82. I lived there for four years.  One of the first things I did when I got there was to buy an XJ650 Yamaha.  I rode that thing everywhere.  Any chance Mcquarries Coffee is still in business?  My long term goal is to get on my K100 and not stop until I hit Vancouver Island.
