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

And are you putting that towards a 790?  After next week I'll be past my anniversary and likely fired from work so travel opportunities to Quebec should come up.  Are we past black fly season yet?   Very Happy

Hi,
Ktm 790 has 1100 km on it already - yes, put your $$ & his $$ on it. Sold the V-Strom to the dealer/stealer LOL

Glad/sad you will get canned. Too many people wait "just one more year, I need the $$" then they croak 6 months later. Evil or Very Mad 
Don't fall into that trap - if you wait long enough all your joints will keep you from riding... Laughing 

Black flies segue into mosquitoes, followed by horseflies. Followed by snow. Repeat...

Yes, get your arthritic pale-skinned self here soon. If you don't want to do the round trip in one day we can accommodate you - we can swap carpenter horror stories & Beer drinker 

Bring wifey if she dares...

Cheers, Lorne

I'll be there soon. I already put the address on the GPS(Zumo bought from somebody in Quebec). You never know....
Sorry to hear that you have to sell your bike. I am getting there too. Arthritis and arthritic pain are newer words added to my vocabulary. Sad Sad Sad Sad
