Howdy gang, Scott here, from Oregon though currently living in hell, SW Floriduh to help with my elderly mom.  

I've owned over 100 bikes, including over 40 (50?) Beemers, almost all were boxers of air, oil, and water cooled variety.  Besides my newly acquired K bike (see below), I have a 2016 R1200R roadster resplendent in white with red frame.  Nekkid and fast.

I just picked up my first early K bike, an '85 K100RS with low miles (19K) in gorgeous Alaska Blue, everything works, never down, WITH a color matched and professionally installed Hannigan Sprint sidecar, which is like new.  This is my 3rd BMW hack, my first two handled like crap and braked even worse (single front discs suck on a hack).  This K hack handles very well, makes you feel like a he man hustling it through the turns but gives you full confidence it's not going to go into the weeds if you know what you're doing.  The Hannigan is a work of art, with optional disc brake, seat belt, USB and power port, single bright headlight, and tonneau.  OMG I'm in love with this and won't let it go.  My kids can fight over it when my ashes are dispersed over the mighty Pacific near my place in Yachats.

Anyway, I'm super thrilled to be here amongst you all and to glean any knowledge I can when I have questions.  Will try not to ask what is the best oil to use.  Shell Rotella?  LOL

Cheers,

Scott

First post in and you are starting an oil thread. Man you have guts!!!!! 

Next you might be asking about the best Christmas pudding to get.....

I got an 83 Alaska Blue K100RS parked outside, it came 3 years ago at 29k miles after 17 years parked in a boat shed having had 2 elderly keepers......

A beauty that needed a lot of stuff as seals hoses rubbers etc perish.

I love it.

PS All my bikes are K bikes.

Great bike. I lusted after it every time it would repost on craigs! He was all over the place on asking price along the way. Did you also get all the extra body parts he was advertising with it (sometimes) ? I have plans for a K75 RS conversion, and might be interested in some of them.
I've never actually ridden a hack, but lately have been eyeballing a couple.

Welcome to the forum Close Casket.
The K100 is the perfect bike to pull a sidecar and the Hannigan is a piece of art.
I had a K100rt with an EML kit, and I switched to a K1200lt with a Hannigan Astro.
I love the K12, but with a sidecar it doesn't have the same power as the K100. The K12 is a lot heavier and has only an extra 10HP. Another big difference is that I had 15" car wheels on the K100. As a result the top speed was reduced but it was more responsive (who care, because when you go over 160km/h with a rig it become dangerous).
