Re: 1987 Bmw K75rs
Nice looking bike and a nice colour - is it standard? I like the K75's - big enough to tackle long distances, small enough for town work, sweet little engine and economical. Would I pay a premium for a 'rare' fairing - I doubt it and I know the dealer will give some sort of warranty and has to make a profit but $8,000 seems a bit steep for a 20 year old bike. Ebay item 270223923174 is half the price.
How do you ride the twisties? It is a nice ride but a 20 year old bike will never really take on the rice rockets.
Maintenance wise it is a smaller, simpler LT and while it has it's foibles and a couple of known issues they are are not as major as leaking slaves and Rear drives. I would have another one.
