hey, so Iím a new kbike owner , after years of riding mostly sport bikes of various companyís i stumbled on a garage kept 85 k-100 RT with 71k miles on it .†
New from Pittsburgh ,pa 5-ADC439-D-3-A7-E-45-AF-8-F91-65-AFB3874-DBF
The previous owner was nice enough to give me a real decent price (lower then 1200$)I hadn't know a lot about these bikes and since buying it last month and talking to tons of people Iím expecting this bike to last a long time!. I ask a lot of questions so Iím sure youíll be seeing my posts in the forums a whole lot.....I do all my own maintenance and repairs and Iím new to bmw flat engines. I always had American or Japanese bikes ....Iím excited to work on a bike that seems so user friendly ...thanx , be safe...

Welcome Heresa23. Both my LTs have 70+k miles on the clock and (touch wood) are still going strong. Chugging round northern Scotland on one of them, fully loaded with camping gear, at the moment and eating miles like nobodies business.

Make sure you do get to meet up with caveman - I enjoyed meeting up with him and his brother in Pittsburgh back at start of March. Didnít get to ride a k during that brief visit (still snow on the ground).Hopefully I will be back over that way again for a rematch.

Enjoy

Welkome from the east coast of Oz.

That's a nice find and the low seat is a custom work of art - hope it's as comfortable as it looks.

You will enjoy the ownership experience of these fine machines.

Cheers
