Hi all, I have been riding and racing motorcycles for around 50 years. I brought my k75rt in 2009 and rode it for six years before moving it on. I missed it so much that this year I tracked it down and brought it home again. I’m currently restoring it and hope to see it on the road again with vintage registration next year. I look forward to meeting other k owners on this forum. Cheers Mark

With a name like that you must be a good bloke. Even if my parents couldn't spell. Congrats on finding your old bike.

Hi Mark, welkome to this great forum. Get that K75 purring again and on the road as soon as you can.

A few of us from the Hunter Valley will be heading down to the Kosciuszko Rally in October, so a good opportunity to meet up with some of the Victorian members.

Keep an eye on the thread for it.

Cheers

Thanks for the welcome everyone.  I reckon a ride would be good Gaz but don’t think I’ll have rego by October as I’m waiting for the old girl to be old enough for club plates in 2019.....then again can I wait that long?
PS the avatar photo is of when I used to own “little blue” before I sold her to “less appreciative” owners.  Since her re-purchase she is looking a little more cosmetically beaten up and has had her fairing lowers removed.  I have the parts though.  I’llpost pics when I’m able. Cheers

Welcome Mark,

Plenty of help and advice available for free...and only a matter of time before you get a reply from Larrikin muttering something about Mexicans. 

Some great people on that big island of yours. Pity the Previous Owner (PO) didn't take as good care of her as you did, but you can't control what happens when you trade bike for cash. Some dedication though that you tracked her down and got her back again.
