I was just killing a few minutes so I thought I'd go trolling on Cycletrader.com for some eye candy. I found an incredible '96 black & silver (my personal favorite) with low miles, adult owned. Just thought I'd alert the forum in case anyone's looking.....

Disclaimer: No affiliation, no interest other than seeing this beauty go to a good home......say in the state of CO where I could visit and ride it.

No Link? No Pic?

:wtf
I thought about providing a link but I seem to recall some words from a Catholic prayer that go like this: "....and lead us not into temptation...."

Warning, this is some serious moto-porn and I don't want to be responsible for leading ANYONE into temptation!


Otherwise the nuns would beat me.....DAMHIK

Out of curiosity, how does the performance of this bike compare to the K1200RS? This bike looks a lot lighter. And good looking.

I can't answer your question because I never owned this model. I used to own a '92 K1 (1000cc) and if I were to race a KRS I'd lose as if tied to a post.

I had a '93. The power was similar. It was a great bike, can't remember exactly why I sold it!

A very underrated machine.... much better than the K100's. It just got lost in the shuffle and was the bridge between the K100's and the K1200. It was pretty clunky around town, though, just needed to stretch its legs like the K1200. I could cruise at 100 mph all day long. It had a tubular frame and maybe needed some styling updates...

I believe the K1200 used the same block and was about as far as BMW could go without re-tooling the motor.

I had a bike just like that one, only better looking. Mine had the reflectors and decal removed and some pinstriping. It was the prettiest bike I've ever owned, but it killed me to ride it. Throttle was hard on the wrist, buzzed, and the heat it gave off would cause the side panel to fall off.
I loved that bike, but then a took a K12RS for a test ride...... the rest -as they say- is history.
