Sounds good, but not sure if the governor, il Douche Cuomo, will allow me to get an Interstate Mobility Permit(IPM). 

Even if I can get one, will the dirtbag govs in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and the Chee allow a furriner to enter and expose their subjects to the Red Death? 

With millions of people now dropping dead from the covid on the streets, how long before the Dawg House gets shut down to save a few miserable lives?   Will there be plow operators to clear the piles of dead bodies from the highways so someone can drive through?

Pumas are said to be nonexistent in Wisco.  Don't you bet on it.  The DNR cougar siting website says zero known population except "transients".  Rounded a corner on County K at Blue Mounds State Park and had a big cat encounter.  He was right in the road inspecting road kill and just sauntered back toward the park.  No pics, but I was changed. Awesome. 83 R80RT project coming home.

Rcgreaves - congrats on the R80, been wanting one since I started fooling with BMW in 1990 and got sucked into the K Bike life...
thankfully, they are as rare as pumas in Wisco, so the temptation to add one to the fold hasn't materialized.

Johnny, Alabama brew. Ok Cheezconsin motobricking needs to resume, you are all on notice.  Both my Ks have assumed parked posture while I sort and ride others. This R80 project is rewarding but the fuel system has proven challenging with the bottom panel significantly rusted form 25 year in storage. much profanity and TIG welding. Now prepping tank for a Caswell liner.  One carb was a mouse condo with much corrosive piss both in the carb and airbox. One piston sleeve was much pitted as well as air bypass ports crammed with crud. Much ultrasonic cleaning and profanity.  With the fuel system sorted Im moving on to everything else.  Greetings to my pals Laitch et al.  Enjoying May on the VFR.

Thanks for the warning, RC. Do you wear those "No Malarkey" Ray Ban's and that flight-line operator's vest on the VFR?  :afro:

Volodor, I know better than to get you started by poking back.  Yes,  a safety course once told me that the vest makes me more visible to  all the Donnas rolling around texting in their Chevy Neon.  Now I will add that if I invite my 9 year old Lab Pnut along young women come up and start a conversation in an attempt to mee my pooch, vest or not  :laughing4-giggles:  Cheers mate, nice to hear back from you, I recall your many gracious replies over the years.  Regards. 

I have one month before I start a new IT business Analyst gig. My K75S and K1100 have been in the air awaiting clutch surgery for two years...Its about time don't you think?

8 pages in 8 years deserves a fresh thread.  mr_10brook, Greg is coming the "The Chee" sometime, probably late September to collect purchased bits from me.  We are down for a ride before sending him home.  My personal goal is to push through sorting my K75S.

I pitched a 1200 mile run around Superior. I know, a Johnnie idea...

We could meet in Madison at the Mickey's Dairybar some Saturday late AM?

We could meet in Livingston 53554 and roll the driftless et al for X hours or days?

Anyway, Johnie n Clay havent riden in 2 years.  How bout you? Interest?

So tank #1 is Catwell sealed and another showed up on my doorstep.  Second times the charm....managing the heat on this corroded (thinner) metal not for the feint of heart).  Anyway, practice practice practice when it comes to welding.  Votador, cheers and happy holidays, yes, tank # is done, pressure checked ok and awaiting final assembly.

Clayton,

I hope to make it back to Wisconsin on a motorcycle next year.  This year I did make it back to Monroe and then Green Bay for a Packers game, it helps when your first cousin is the Director - Football Operations  112350

 We'll see what happens  this next year.

Anyone plan on attending the MOA or RA national rallies?  I'll be there and at the MOA will be working Airhead Central.

No plans for attending these big events.  2023 will be my year for more gravel.  Where TBD.  Hope we connect again

This charming fellow from France JBT ( the next thread queued in this forum btw…)got me thinking about changing tires and doing more gravel:  https://www.k100-forum.com/t12486-k75-gs-conversion
Ichyboots.com has given me wander lust..
My county is rather rural and many of the back roads are gravel.  I swapped Mr. TenBrook for some sweet lookin ADV tires.  Happy holidays my friend.

Sorry to derail this discussion if that's what I've done.

Here's one example of an off tarmac K.  I have my snow flakes set up just so.  The Emporor said " your lack of vision will cause you to suffer".. so take that. And then he jolts the guy...

I don't see myself in Baja on my K but shod with more aggressive rubber I intend to tear around the wealth of well engineered gravel I find around here.

Very nice!!

Rear suspension presumably altered as well as the front (can't see in this photo) -- and do you do a driveshaft spline extension a la Bruno? Would spokes be better on the wheels? Rear drums makes sense if you're hoping to lay it down a few times . . . I so much prefer riding my K on anything other than really rough roads, it would be great to have an enduro K75

Really nice!  I have thought about an endure K75 variant, but was always concerned about front end weight and geometry causing the front end to understeer badly.  I will be interested in how your bike hadles in soft ground.

Hey Gryph… it will handle great because I intend to leave the suspension alone.  For true enduro work I’ll find the correct hammer.  Pic was from the archive as an example. 
 Recognize those suspension parts? No markings. Differ from images in manual.

That is not your bike in the photo is it?  I thought it was.  Those forks look like they are off a motocrosser, probably very soft and squishy with 12 inches of travel.  Those look like Preston Petty mudguards.  Nice look for off road. 

Those forks make the front wheel look kind of small.  I would feel better even on gravel with a 21 inch wheel in front and another inch or so of travel added in the rear.  The K75 doesn't have what I consider enough rake and trail in the front end for really fast traffic in the rough. The bigger wheel might help.

At least the tires will give you lots of additional grip that will come in very handy, especially when diagonally crossing ruts in the road.

If you go back 6 or 7 years here, you might find information on Tim Tyler's K75 which he set up for riding fire roads in the Northwest.  It was a very tidy machine that could cover rough ground pretty quickly.
