Hello to all from a former owner.

I rode my first ever K100 when BMW first launched them in the UK. At the time I owned an R100RS and loved it. While I was unimpressed with the naked K100 I though the K100RS was superb and was determined to get one. Since then I've owned:

2 x K100RS
1 x L100LT
1 x K100RS 16v
1 x K1

From the K family, I've also owned:

1 x K1200S
2 x K1300S

While I've owned other non-BMWs I do find I keep coming back to the concept that the original K100 gave us of a sports motorcycle that will take hard luggage and a pillion, offering decent performance and fun  coupled with comfort and reasonable economy.

I currently ride a R100CS (nostalgia  Very Happy )  and a Kawasaki H2 SX SE. 

I'm sort of thinking about the possibility of getting another K100RS as another nostalgia trip but I'm not yet  sure that's what I'll do.

Welcome, you seem to have rode a bit of everything. Have you tried a K75?

A friend had a K75S when I had my K100RS 16v so I had a number of rides on that. Loved it for around town work - lighter, smoother etc. - but found it slightly lacking in the "get up and go" department on the open road. A great bike but the 100's were always just that little bit better. 

I only had the K100LT because my wife was coming pillion regularly and she found it more comfortable than the RS. She passed her test and bought a Yam FJ1200 which is why I then bought the 16v. (I had to make sure I could keep up!  Shocked  Very Happy )


PS - The friend with the K75S, who I introduced to motorcycles, still rides with me and is now on his 3rd K1300S!

Very Happy There's already a long queue of friends who currently own a K1300S and will give it a good home but I'll add you to the end!  lol!
