I did see that one and it looks nice but am going to stick with the K100 in preference to the K75. Got a few longish trips planned.....

But that one does look really nice.

Go on buy it a K75 is so nice to ride and barely down on power.
I am looking for a K75 that I can put all the gear from the K1100 onto and have the best of both worlds.

Its the 'barely' that does it.

I have found this balance between power, handling and performance is very important. A simple tweak can make such a difference and that is everything if you like long and I mean long trips. I would regularly do 400mile round trips in one day, whether its car or bike. If you do more then it becomes critical. I drove car to Budapest last summer and one of my days did 750 miles.

I am hoping something I am doing works out, if it does I am on for a long trip in September to visit my brother in Croatia and just might travel via Italy [to see Pompeii and a certain K get together]and take the ferry across from Ancona to Split. The drive is the same distance. I would definitely prefer the K100 and would not be without the LT/RT full fairing. If the K100 doesn't work out then I might go K1100.

Mr 92. That's a lot of miles. How many has your bike done now?

My "new" one has 84K on the clock and I'm hoping for a lot more. Any idea what I can expect? Is this the last bike I'll ever buy? {as if!!!}

Sorry for the thread hijack...

There is one guy in US who has over 1 million miles so far and that was 2 years ago so I reckon 84K is almost
