I need some information from the experts as well as driver - ownership information.
I currently own a 1992 K 100 RS with 45,00 miles (72K). It is in excellent clean condition and runs like a champ these bikes are known for.
I have the opportunity to trade towards a 2000 K 1200 RS with 20,164 miles. I inspected and road the bike it is clean and is excellent condition with the usual scuffs from use. I enjoy the newer front suspension, the power of the engine as well as the body change.
I have replaced many parts to my K 100 RS such as both master brake cylinders, throttle side electronics, both pivot bearings - etc. The bike runs like a champ. Both are ABS (I and k1200 II).
Please let me know the advantages of the K1200 RS as far as reliability, comfort etc and possible issues I should look for and I guess lastly is this a positive upgrade.
I have thick skin so fire away as I need to either pull the trigger or keep what I got and move on with my maintenance plans.
Thank you all.
Speed is fine but accuracy is final.
