Hi everyone,   

My boyfriend,Dave, and I found a killer deal on this K100 RS SE, amd could t pass it up.   Dave’s first thought was let’s get the bike running and make some quick cash, but after spending a couple days getting it started, and riding this beauty for the first time, he’s now thinking we might keep it.  We have to downsize to our toy collection, but something else might have to get cut.  Plus, now that I know I can touch and feel comfortable on it myself, it would make a great commuter bike for my 40 mile ride to work every day.


Who suits the bike better ?.?  Dave or myself?

You look like you're enjoying it more, so Dave is out of luck.

Be aware that the hardest part of commuting on a brick is making that turn into the parking lot at work.

My favorite paint scheme of all.  They are very rare and I seldom see one for sale.
