Howdy people, I currently run a '71 R60/5 bobber and a 1150RTP of 2002 vintage.
I hope to be riding a K100 soon, if I can get it to run...yep you guessed it, thats what has driven me here!
I will start picking your brains ASAP and hope that in turn I can offer help on more general matters.

Paul

Hey Paul, you are not too far away from me. The Irish will be arriving in my area in May. I am sure that Olaf will tell you about it.

Welcome to the forum Paul.

You may have an international crew coming to help you if the bike is not fixed at the end of May.

Hi all, looks like your destination is about 200kms East of me, My birthday 19th May so the fridge will be stock and the kettle on!
Incidentally, looks like the overfuelling problem is solved (bad earth combined with a low battery in my multimeter would you believe)

200kms sounds about right. Along the motorway to Perigueux and then down a bit, about 2 hours I should think.

Hey mate, you don't have to come down, it is just a place where some of us will be in May/June. No need to go anywhere that you don't want to.
A K was made to cover huge distances at high speeds in perfect comfort.
