Welcome along Bob,

I'm sure you have already checked out the advice on the portal page for new K owners, but plenty of great advice on pretty much every problem you may encounter (type a few pertinent words into the search engine) and, if you can't find what you're looking for, even more advice to be had direct from other forum members.

Best way to learn about them is to get out and ride 'em and start by doing the basic maintenance'll soon be hooked.

hey Bob - Welcome to the forum! bounce

I'm a newbie too, newbie to the forum and to the "Flying Brick". BMW's are such excellent bikes, they do have their quirks but overall they were built sturdy and strong and fairly user-friendly. This forum is a GREAT place to look for info, just browse the threads and you will edumacate yourself a'plenty Smile

I've got a soft spot for Texas. One of my ancestors died at a small place called The Alamo. His name was James Butler Bonham.
