    Well, I decided to join suit. Picked up an '86 K75C to live in the northwest with one of the Miatas... definitely a different beast than the R's. I like it so far! :)

    I also bought the HB bags (from Bob's BMW) when my original bags on the '78 /7 got past the point of being further repairable. I'm not sure if my originals were the BMW bags or Krausers (they looked...

    I've got the Avon Roadriders on my R80/7 after years of Lazertecs- I like the Avons quite a bit better than the Metzlers (front or rear). I'm on my second set of Avons now- they handle nicely and...
