Hello to all,

My first involvement with the K100RT was in '84.   The bike in question was bought new in Germany, entered the US through Canada and ridden across the border into Ohio when I bought it.  Back in the day, the machine was considered a used machine (Ohio plates), therefore not subject to California regulations.  

Additionally, I have a second K100RT bought used in '86.  This machine is hooked to an EML double wide side car.  The front of the bike has and EML "earls style," front fork with 15 inch car wheels (wide tires).  The rear of the bike uses a double rear swing arm (air cooled bikes, but heavier built) with another 15" rim and flat wide rear tire as well.   The side car also has a disc brake on it.  The shocks front and back are all Koni shocks and springs.   Additionally, the earls front end uses a hydraulic (adjustable) steering damper.    

This outfit is what we used as our "motor home"  for vacations, BMW rallies, etc.   As a side note there is a top that we'd install when it starting raining to keep my wife and son, warm and dry in wet weather.   Of course, I'd be out in the weather, but I enjoyed the trips we'd take on this rig.

As a side note fuel mileage would average between 28 to 32 mph.  Not bad considering that the combination loaded weighed in about 1200 pounds, with all the gear on it and us.

All the best.
