Anyone ride one of these before?
Debating if I want to get into one. I read a lot of things concerning the splines, driveshaft service, and other topics with these BMW's.
If the price is right, I don't think I'd mind.
Looking for a nice upright seating commuter.
I just bought a 1991 k75s(triple cylinder) back in April for $1900. put about 2,000 miles on it so far(bought it w/ 42k on it). It's a solid bike. I've been using it as my commuter and for weekend rides. gf fits comfortably on the back as well. can get almost 200 miles out of a tank. It's definitely not super exciting but it's a smooth ride and i've had some fun w/ it on the back roads. especially if you can get one w/ the bigger fairing; try to find one w/ the saddlebags too. those things are so useful. First gear might as well not even exist. pretty useless. not too fast off the line but once u hit 5k it picks up. My gearbox is a bit clunky though(only between 1st & 2nd) and seems to have a couple issues i need to check into....bike likes to stop into neutral sometimes when going between 1st and 2nd(typically on a downshift). and also does it when i downshift from 4th to 3rd occasionally. probably dig into it after summer.
