Hey! Hi from Central Texas
« on: November 13, 2023, 10:38:13 PM »
Thanks for having me, I've visited a few times. This K75S is my 4th Bimmer, however it's been a long stretch without a bike. Happy to be back up on two motorized wheels. Previous BMW's were two Henna Red with Alpine White wheeled R65LS' and an '85 K100RS in Alaska Blue. This K75S is the perfect balance between those two models: smooth, no buzzy mirrors, fast enough for what I do, fun and easy to get through the corkscrews with confidence.

Other bikes? A Bianchi and a Gunnar - those have pedals, ha!

Welcome and many here would agree, the smooth running K75 is an ideal mixture of speed, comfort, reliability, and classic ('80's) good looks!

Bimmers are cars. Motorcycles are Beemers.
Once I had a Collie pup. Dug a hole and covered him up. Now I sit there by the hour. Waiting for a Collie-flower.

My first Beemer was an '82LS.  Getting the K75s in "86 was like moving from an MGB to a Porsche!
