New to the forum but have owned a 'brick' since December 1985. First, a Alaska Blue K100RS purchased new. After !3 years and 205,000 km, it was sent to god by a red light running Volvo.
In January 1999, I purchased a used Pearl White 1992 K100RS(16v) with 19,000 km on the clock. It is now showing nearly 395,000 km. As I've never owned a car, the 'bricks' have been my primary vehicle.

Having joined the BMWMCC(Vic.) in 1996, I am honoured to be a life member.

I am also a Motorcycle Instructor with Stay Upright, training and testing learner and licence students.

Welcome Karl, 

I'm sure you'll have some valuable tips for the forum. I never even rode a BM until about five years ago, still haven't even ridden a boxer.

Enjoy the ride.

Welcome! My 16valve K100RS has been my favorite bike since I got my first one 6 years ago.

How have the exhaust headers held up on your bike? Hope you will share some tips on keeping a brick running for so long.

My - cracked - OE exhaust system is hanging in my garage. I replaced it with a Staintune full system at 38, 516 km.. The primary reason for replacement being a better sound.
