Gidday, I'm new and from Australia. I have a 1989 K75S, so you should treat me as you would your little brother.

Never had a little brother, so I don't know whether I'd have helped him out or beaten him up.  lol!

  Don't own a 75, but those who do love them. On my wish list.

Bill, I know you won't beat me up. We guard the Victorian border very carefully and you would need your passport with a Victorian visa in it.

See This post (posts 105 and 112) re border guarding.  Razz

If we have another gathering around the snowy area next year, it'd be great to see you there if the border guards let you through. 
We might even sneak across the border if the invisibility cloak works. 

Apart from that, I'm too nice a guy to beat you up, and you might be bigger than me. Very Happy

Welkome from another K75 owner!

It is a great bike to ride - in my case very different from my K1100 but each a very enjoyable experience in their own way.

Trees??? Bush????  In the industrial west of the city we don't know the meaning of such words. Are these things similar to the West Gate Bridge perhaps?

In my case Ned and his lot are far far away as I'm in Greta NSW in the Hunter Valley north west of Newcastle. You should come up sometime as we're a social bunch and you are bound to see some of those trees and bush on the way.

It's a beautiful 20o in Windsor right now. Great riding weather.
Hey Damage, ya can always go for a ride up the mud highway, I mean the Yarra River (it's the only river you can walk on).

Since Victoria didn't start as a penal colony, I think you will just need a Ticket of Leave to get across the border.  Ride down the Yarra and when you see high pollution on the right, your're looking at the WEST. We are all inbred here, so ask anyone they'll know how to find me.

Don't feel bad Damage , I've been at this game for a long time so have a good selection of gear , if I need to go into the office I'll just open the garage door , take a peek then put on the appropriate items , I don't waste my time and money on crap stuff ( buy it cheap , buy it twice )

Welcome along Damage - seems like you have got stuck into some healthy inter-state banter. You've got a great krew on your doorstep and it sounds like you'll fit right in with them.

Cold and rain - are you talking a typical UK summer? Geeze - some of you guys just don't know when you have it good! 

@JR_K100RS wrote:No such thing as bad riding weather just bad riding gear

Up here in the temperate northern climes, good riding gear is the only answer and there is some great riding and a warm welcome to be had in the UK and Ireland if you ever venture over this way....
