Thanks for opening the door Moderators. It’s great to be inside. My name is Chris. Having had a K75S in the early 90s and loving it, I bought a 1989 K100RS on return from time living in Australia. That was fantastic but alas, it was stolen and broken. I paid my £50 to the police to get it back but having no space I gave it to a mate to sit in the weather with his K collection for 5 years. At last I found a place to live with space, and meanwhile having bought a 1990 K75RT I brought the old K100 back. That is now nearly stripped in my workshop (just the engine to do. I wish the head bolts were hex) to be rebuilt. Then I want to make an adventure tourer from the K75. I love the bike but can’t get on with the side fairings. I can’t get my legs out in a hurry with a pillion and it dumps water straight onto my boots. So that will change and big miles will be done. I’m really looking forward to talking tech. Thanks for listening.

Thanks both for the welcome. I lived in Melbourne Tom, in South Yarra. Great place to be. I was born and brought up in Adelaide but have lived most of my life in the UK. Where are you based yourself?

Thanks Tom and Arina. Yes, I’ll post photos, and there’ll be questions too I’m sure. I’m really looking forward to following the group and seeing the bikes emerge.

Thanks Bonzo. THAT pond! Just a short hop on the steam packet. I’ll look for photos of your K100RS.

Thanks Moriati. Yes! The Wirral egg run. I’ve never done it. Must do. First post will be gearbox question I think, on the assumption that T45P socket in the post gets the head bolts out.
