Good day all, my name is Dave and I am living in Kamloops BC, Canada. I ride a 1985 K100 with oem saddle bags (unfortunately the early locks), and aftermarket fairing that was on the bike when I bought it approx 12 years ago.
Presently the bike runs well, as it has the all the time I have owned it with the typical annoyances such as speedo, charge light, tach, side stand bend, etc. All in all no major mechanical probs. I am due for a clutch change soon so will need to bone up on the subject.
Anyway glad to join you all and look forward to learning from your combined wisdom.

Best Regards:
Dave

Hi Dave welKome to K-world. Glad you can join us after such a long time.
While its a very reliable machine, as you have experienced, some others not so lucky. A wealth of information here and I'm sure you've got some advice to give and K-biking stories to tell also.
Cheers from Downunda

Welcome to the forum, Dave. I'll probably be in your neighborhood in July, as the last Laverda rally is planned over in Nakusp. Sad to say a grand tradition is drawing to a close there.
Cheers,
Lawrence

Welcome too.

12 years is a good ownership so lots of stories there.!

Sad to see a Laverda rally dying out. The Jota was always one of my favourite bikes.
