Cool Back on a Beamer again

Found it on local Craigslist before Thanksgiving, went out to take a look at it, within 6 hours of it being posted on Craigslist, I put a deposit on it for the purchase, it was simply too good of a deal to pass.



Under $4k, only 72xx mi. on her, completely stock (unmolested) with heated grips and ABS.



I see Ohlins and BlackHole exhaust in the near future.



Clear title, clean bike.. I'm the third owner now, 1st owner had many Beamers; this one didn't get ridden much.
2nd owner has 2 small kids, not wholelot of time to ride, moving on to vintage Hondas

Bike even cames with cases.. got it out in the daylight to take some decent pics.:





Engine output doesn't feel as powerful as my previous R1150RS, but seems to rev up quicker.

Alot more vibration than I remembered of my R1150RS, too.
Sitting at traffic light I can see the whole instument panel shaking like a Harley.

Got to take a weight mesurement, with cases and about 25 lb. of stuff in them, the bike weighs in at 560 lb., dude standing be the window is outside of the scale area:

Question

I sold this 1985 K100 to my friend over 4 years ago... yesterday on a ride near Lake George:





any history of 2-valve K-bikes going up in flames?

Steam Gift Card

Unlike some diehard PC or nothing enthusiasts, I dont harbor any innate hatred toward consoles. Heck, my earliest gaming memory is of playing Super Mario Bros. until midnight, after my dad came home with a Nintendo tucked under his arm when I was five. I enjoyed the Xbox 360 so much that I burned through five of them. 6 reasons why I love being a PC gamer - 2019
