It is with mixed emotions that I announce that my K75RT is for sale Sad
I'm 71 now and it's getting just too heavy for my weak legs to handle...
It's got 78000 km on it, so you know it's still young. And it's a peach...
Comes with 2 sidecases & top case, Corbin seat...
Last winter I did the usual oil & filter change, but also coolant, brake fluid, gearbox, rear drive, & the all-important spline lube (with Guard Dog Moly) fuel filter, air filter (not so easy to change)
New (2500 km) Metzler tires, new rear brake pads...
Ready to go anywhere from here in Rawdon, Quebec, Canada.

And there is a 1990 K75RT which I bought new in 1991 with 25000 km - it didn't run for a few years, usual dumb reasons, which i thought I would bring back to life but bought the 1995 instead. So it's a donor bike the has not donated anything, it's complete, with a new fuel pump waiting to be installed...

Spare parts (new) include clutch cable, spark plugs, oil filter & wrench, 1 extra stock seat, 2 side bags... both the Clymer & Haynes shop manuals.

Somebody please take it (or them) away before I change my mind, I'm weak right now.

Rode 250 km on the 1995 yesterday, runs like it should - smooth. Very Happy
I'm willing to sell one or both, but no giveaways - I'm not broke.
Make me an offer, i'm going to ask CDN$3750 for the running 1995, CDN$1250 for the 1990...

Cheers, Lorne

Lorne, good to hear from you again. I'll be 71 this summer, and am now trying to get another year or two with my RT by installing a shorter rear shock and sliding the forks up in the triple clamps. Along with a low seat, those may be some things you could try.

Nice to hear from you also, old friend Very Happy
It's not so much about the height, it's the weight. Old legs & knees... Sad
Plus I've got a V-Strom 650 and a Yamaha XT250 in the garage. The V-Strom is at least 100 pounds lighter - the XT weighs 290 pounds, it's like riding a bicycle LOL. The garage is pretty crowded with all those & wife's Yamaha YZF-R3...

It's killing me to put the BMW for sale, I've been riding them for 35 years...

Thanks for your help in the past, & good luck with the lowering job Wink

Lorne

So the 1990 'donor' is likely gone to fellow carpenter 'Woodie', if he can get here before it snows again Laughing

Nobody wants the 1995? It's ready to ride...

Ok Lorne, I'm calling around but probably because of past sins I currently live in HD/cruzer territory Evil or Very Mad

As for the decorum at the private beach after midnight and because of my pasty white, saggingly puffy and arthritic parts that I didn't even know could be arthritic I will bring my bathing 'onesy'. I will do my best to maintain a proper sense of public decorum while I am visiting you in "La Belle Provence" (please forgive me if that is the wrong way to spell all that). Very Happy

Pasty white & arthritic? - you'll fit right in Laughing
Provence is a region in southern France, here it's plain old province... Rolling Eyes
