    Smile In my opinion...

    While only the last photo of the group seems to show up it's still enough to drool over.

    Your bike made me realize something that hadn't really hit me until now; the K100RS was the most well-designed bike since BMW switched over from the R-series to K-series (in my not-so-humble opinion). All the bulbuous, overblown, larger displacement models that have come along since then cannot hold a candle to the K100RS' sleek elegance.

    I never get tired of looking at RS's such as your stellar example. As much as I love my K75S I still wish I had my FYK!

    Btw, I also like the look of your bike without the battery covers although I realize that may not be intentional (perhaps the new paint is still curing?). If you do leave them off I might suggest camouflaging the FI computer with some flat black paint or similar so it isn't so noticeable.

    As we all know, the RS was a bit buzzy at certain RPMs so that's another good call you made on leaving the muffler heat shield off, too. Mine vibrated and buzzed and I finally took mine off, too. That stainless muffler will turn brown over time but a periodic application of Simichrome metal polish will keep it nice and new-looking, too.

    One other detail I might add is a front fork brace if you can find one. I think CC Products/San Jose BMW made them (and may still AFAIK)---it really aided the bike's high-speed stability as well as on rough roads. You will notice the difference if you can round one up.

    At any rate, you have a winner there that must really make you proud!

    Use an on-line photo hosting site, makes multiple photo submissions in one post very easy.
    i use photobucket.com

    Who painted your tank and plastic parts? I am removing these parts from my K75S and putting into boxes to ship as we speak!

    Amen, Amen, you speak the word!!!

    I assume a gem of a K1100RS like this one would qualify also. (not mine, but I wish)

    cleaned up the 85 a saturday before the cold front came in. the bodywork was covered with a rough gritty dust/dirt, etc film from years of sitting. about three hours of hand polishing with a light rubbing compound got it off. have a new set of bt45's getting mounted this week and some overdue service.

    unique?, yes. cool? i doubt that very much.
    i had a similar Pichler (main fairing only) on my K75, and it was quite the oven. i dare imagine what that K100 creates for heat.
