Hello everyone, I just recently picked up a 1985 K100RT for cheap that had been sitting for a few years. It's got 75,000 miles but she's fairly clean and complete. I got her to fire up last night but I've still got some sorting out to do to get her running perfect again. I hope to be posting up some ride reports this spring on her. Looking forward to getting to know more about the "Flying Bricks"

Welkome! It's widely accepted that at 75,000 milles you engine has finally reached the end of the break-in. This is the place to be to get your ride ready to chase the horizon.

Hello Arlina, I believe you were giving me some grief over on Facebook for posting pics of my bike instead of riding her. ;-) After getting a new front tire for her I took her out for about a 5 mile ride today, it's still only about 34 degrees Fahrenheit here but tomorrow is supposed to be up in the 50's so hopefully I'll be able to take a nice little trip after work to get a feel for her.
