Hello, my name is Iain and from Glasgow, Scotland.

I was at a race meeting this time last year (NW200) and the bike that impressed me most in the campsite bike park was a battle hardened gold/beige K100RS with a France registration plate. I thought it was really cool and by good fortune I was offered one ('86 model in blue) by a work colleague in the autumn. I have taken my time to sort out some of the issues it had which has been tricky as the bike is kept outside.

The bike had been laid up for 12 years and the main problem area was with the fuel system - all the perishables between the tank and the injectors had, well, perished. It is running great now although the riding has been restricted to drag runs up and down the back patio.

Anyway, I think I am nearly there and planning for a return to the road within the next couple of weeks.

This site has been a great source of info for me and I have learnt a great deal about my 'K' from it.

Thanks, Iain

Welcome to the forum....seems we don't have to invite you over here as you have already been for the NW200. I should warn you, K is great, contagious and you have to meet Dai, Comberjohn and a few more K owners over here. Don't tell Comberjohn, but I once took a girlfriend to the NW200 on my Honda 500 Four. After the NW200 it was ex. Something to do with how long it took to get there, as opposed to how long it should have taken.

If you feel like wandering over this way you will be very welcome. Feel free to ask any questions about he K too, someone will have answers.

Olaf.
