New to this forum since purchase of K12
Hi all, just thought I'd better do the right thing and intoduce myself. Located in Tassie and ride all year round, no problem with a faired bike. Previously I had a 1988 K100RT which was in need of semi-restoration. Got it all up to scratch and have now toured 5 times in Vic, NSW and ACT, always 2 up with my wife.
Upgraded 3 weeks ago to a 2005 K1200LTE, mainly for the comfort really, but an awesome bike in my opinion. Purchased it from Noosaville and rode to Melbourne in 2 days, easy !! Testament to the comfort and ability to chew up the K's.
Fitter & Machinist by Trade, post graduate diploma in Maintenance Management and working as a reliability engineer. I have an interest in all things mechanical, like to do all my own maintenance (wrenchin' as the Americans say). I've written a bit of tech stuff for the K100 forum of the last few years, hope to continue with that as well. The 1988 K100RT is for sale should anyone be interested or know of someone looking for a good clean example which is reliable and ready to tour. PM me for full details. Best regards and ride safe, Dennis Brown
