Hello to all,
I am an owner of a 1989 K100 RS which i have had for about five years now , I also have a 16V K100 powered Grinnall Scorpion and am restoring a 1980 R100RS to its former glory

I am based in Ireland about 30 miles west of Dublin in county Meath 

Regards
Bill

Hi Bill,

Hello and welcome to the forum. A few K riders not so far from you.....

I know of 2 other Scorpions here, unless you recently acquired one of them. I rather like them.

Some photos will be nice too!

WelKome!

Please post up some pics of the Grinnall.  I'd probably never own one (I used to say that about K1s too LOL) but have always been fascinated by them.

Hello Red K from Cork .... and Duck, 
I have been a member on the K11og site for years but only found this forum the other day , the Scorpion I have owned for 13 years and it still gives me the same buzz to drive even now, Everything's on lock-down at the minute here but my job in a semiconductor fab site is deemed "essential" so i'm still on the road using the K100 everyday the last while (i treated myself to Gerbing heated gloves so the "cold" weather is not an issue Smile ) so i'm kind of back in the "K" zone , also just bought an E90 316i car so a bit BM obsessed at the minute. I had been searching for my intermittent lights/indicators problem online which is a load shed relay issue - time for some TLC for the K methinks.
Regards
Bill

Hi Bill

Welcome from Dublin. 

I have lots of electrical parts if you need to do any troubleshooting and not that far from you.

Thanks for the replies to all ,
yes an Irish K get together would be good , "bricks" are a rare sight on Irish roads these days , I'm ok for parts at the minute thanks I'll post if I'm in need, actually on the off chance in case anyone can help i do need a petrol tank for my 1980 R100RS its one with a cut-out under the tank for a remote master cylinder they are notorious for rust and the one on my bike is beyond saving ......
I will post up some pics of my stable when i log in from home all my images are on my home laptop

Regards
Bill
