New Owner Checking In

Better late than never, aye?

7 years off any bike, got the itch. Being an 89 E30 M3 owner thought I would keep it in the family. Got an 88 K75s w/ 37k miles. 3 weeks and 2k miles later trapsing everywhere from Estes <-> Woodland Park Colorado can report this 22 year old brick is running quite well, am very happy!

The bricks:

nice to see you are gettin some use out of the old girl...

i've been off of a street bike for about 20 yrs and put about 5k on a mid-eighty's maxim this summer and am hooked again.
i just picked one up and am working on getting it back on the road (still needs tires and a battery)..
i love the look and am looking fwd to putting some mile on 'er this coming season.




good luck and ride safe...

Good choice. I got mine new in 86 and still haven't found anything more versatile, dependable and easy to live with. 200k and still going strong.

Dbikers -- shouldn't that custom plate read XLV?

Chaos -- Way to go - train them early.

Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism, complete with witch hunts, funny outfits, and solemn preachers thundering doom. The name of God is changed to Safety; the name of Satan is changed to Lawyer; but the object remains the same: to suck all the life out of life and make you live on the husk.
