    I am lucky so far that my abs is still working. I like the way it handles and the windshield. I have everything stripped off of ir just to try to not
    get over heated. It looks like a K75. Should I mention the wonderful sound system>>? lol Want to put water in the radiator>? Sure, pull the
    tank off..How about using chopsticks to pull the radio. That was a genius. So thats the rant. I am told just to do the maintainance and this bike
    will run forever. 600 bucks a year for the annual at bmw. after 10 years on my
    Suzuki Intruder I might have put in 500 dollars. For six grand I could just buy another bike
    I agree it's not the right bike for you. Whenever I hate a bike I trade it for one I like better. I love my K75s. Didn't like my K1100LT so traded it in on an R1150R.

    Everyone likes the K75s. I was looking at an R1150RT during this last bike week. I do like the sound of the boxer. I like the old airheads too.
    In all honesty I just love the way my K feels at 80 and up. So smooth. There are just no autobahns around here. We shall see.
