Of course it feels a little old: the bike was introduced in 1988! that's 18 years ago, what other 18 year old bike is not outdated? Marzochi forks, Brembo brakes, ABS, cat, the lowest wind drag ever, the daring style - still the K1 brings a smile to my face - the high pegs, my heels up against my buttocks... I ride my K1200RS with higher speeds on the straights - but the K1 faster in the twisties.
If you can laugh at your own stupidities, you have fun all year round!
BMW K1 '91 for sports, BMW K1200RS '03 for touring, Honda CB750K '80 for winter.
