FInally finished a restoration of my old 1991 K100RS.
Fantastic job. I know what was involved. A lot of hard work.

I love it, I wish my old K looked that nice, it will probably get painted this summer. (I dropped it.....)
K100s are on the top heavy side. I know I ride a K100RT. A set of case savers, crash bars, can help keep the bike from sustaining a lot of damage in walking speed tipovers. Much easier to sand and paint black bars than painted rear view mirrors,fairing pieces, etc.. Also much easier to pick up bike laying on the case savers and not the bike itself. In a real crash, case savers are going to get destroyed, just talking about walking the bike speed tip over here.
Engine case savers. Bars that go around the engine. I think BMW built rear safety bars for the police K bikes. Those were a little wider than the smaller police style saddlebags. I don't think BMW built wider safety bars that would protect the BMW regular size intragal bags.
