I've always been a rat bike kind of guy, so bimmers were never high on my wish list. A bit too pricey and ...I'll say it ...precious, for my taste. Then I started poking around the net and was intrigued by tall tales of thousands upon thousands of carefree miles these old kbikes were getting...and the price is right...so what the Hell I say, maybe an old Kbrick is just what the current circumstances call for...(cheap, fast and dependable, sounds good on paper).
I find a low-mile unit online in Seattle for $2500, fly out from Indy and pick it up. 3K miles and a week later I am in love! I've had bikes of many persuasions, but none of them eat miles like this baby. Once I got her out of the parking lot at the bike shop (THAT was embarrassing!) it was all sweetness. For being 20 years old the machine feels amazingly tight. Carves like a knife and goes like a bat.
I can see the beginnings of an addiction here.
So hello Bimmer people, You will probably see me around the forums, or better yet, down the road.
....hmmm I wonder if I should shoot on a coat of flat black...
Ride to live
