Greetings from NJ
« on: November 04, 2018, 12:47:47 AM »
Proud new owner of a 1991 K75 and a greasy dog eared Clymer manual.  I came across this website on an initial web search, thankful I did! My brick has 32k on the odomoter so she is still hydrating, hasn’t cured to full compressive strength.

Looks perfectly fine to me Laitch. It's about time the rest of the world learned to orientate their pictures. :twak:

Liking the color.  That is a low low low seat, looks a little hard on the buns.

It's useful for incontinent riders though.

You guys havent seen this seat yet? It’s the new-new cafe racer seat! Perfect when you drink too many “cafes” and not fast enough to race to the bathroom.  I will figure out the upside down thing....eventually

Manchester guy, is this your first foray into the world of Brick? Been riding long? You don't give us much to go on.

Looks like an Airflow seat to me.

And like Martin says, works for him!

Yup my first Brick.  I have wanted one for a while, finally pulled the trigger.  I grew up riding dirt, got my M endorsement at 23. I have ridden different bikes over the years (now 42) last bike was a Honda 919.  My wife has an 06 Bonneville Black. So I have some plans for the brick, but going to ride it for a while.

I'm also in NJ, Ringoes near Flemington, picked up a 1990 brick off Cape Cod. We should ride.

Welcome. Great to have a wife who rides her own, instead of two-upping. Enjoy the ride!
