    A little suspicious of the claim that it's the original color....

    Hey Gilly, I've got a question for you. I've got a '91K75s (sorry, not original litter), and just bought a solo seat, looks to be pretty much the same as yours (BMW stock). I had the Corbin stock seat on it, bought the solo as a spare while I send my Corbin to be recovered. When I took of the Corbin off to switch out the mounting gear, I noticed that Corbin had threaded posts installed on their seats, while the BMW seat has the reverse, square M6 nuts embedded in the seat. No problem, I just put some M6 bolts in, however, the back seat hinge has me a little baffled. The Corbin had one hinge, and I can't see what secures it to the seat...another hinge part? a simple nut and bolt won't do it, looks like there's something I'm missing. BTW, nice S!

    What state are you located in?


    Last 4 digits are 0106. You have 3. Wow. Have you ridden the K1100lt and if so, what did you think? I love the K75 but think I would like more upright and wind protection. I have barbacks mounted which put me more upright than stock. The 1100lt looks massive compared to the 75S. I'm in So Cal, Orange County area.

    Thanks, Brad

    106!!!! Our bikes are littermates!! Our bikes are from the "original litter" (first month of production). Your bike was built in the first two weeks of production of U.S. Spec. K75Ss. May of 1986.

    My bike was 25 bikes in front of yours on the assembly line.

    That makes seven from the original litter of 325 that are owned by MOA members and have responded that they are still alive.

    They only made 4600 Ss through all ten years of production. I would bet that there are considerably less than 3000 left based on the frequency that I see them being parted out on e-bay.

    The k1100lt has a reputation of radiating alot of heat onto your legs and some have said that that factor alone is enough to not consider it for warm climates (SoCal).

    You don't need wind protection. What you need is to wear earplugs. The S windscreen is better know as a wind noise generator. It puts turbulent air right at the base of your helmet and makes it VERY noisy. It actually gets quiet when you stand up! Try the earplugs. It makes riding these bikes a true joy. You will appreciate the smoothness even more.

    Last 500

    My 93 is 154149 not one of the first to come to the US but it is one of the last 500.

    It's interesting that from 86 until Oct 92 4070 were built then only 530 from then to Sep 94.

    I won't be on my K75S at Johnson City, but would sure like to see a nice collection on display. If you all can pick a place and time for a meeting and display, we should be able to have some photos that could make it into the rally edition of the Owners News.

    You don't deserve another prize. Your prize is in your driveway. What a GORGEOUS bike!!!

    Check out mrei2007's bike on "Post a picture of your K-bike" middle of pg 49. Looks like serious concours material.
