    You mean had as in it's no longer in my possession. It was as pretty in real life as it looked in the photo and with some minor cosmetic work could have been made to look showroom new. I bought the luggage from another K1 owner and then ended up buying every set I could get my hands on. I eventually had four complete sets of luggage & tank bags w/rain covers at one time before selling them off at the beginning of the riding season. Many K1 owners had no idea how rare the rear luggage was so I was picking up sets as cheap as $100 and selling them for $350 - $400 for the rears and up to $250 for the tank bag.

    Anyway, I sold the K1 to an older gent from Arizona who'd always lusted after one but he kept it only six months before giving it to his son in Chicago. It was a fun bike to own but ergonomically speaking it killed me to ride it more than a few hundred miles at a time. I once did a 300+ mile day on it and could barely get off it when I got home.

    I can forgive a bike's shortcomings to a certain extent but in the end the deal killer for me was the K1's battleship turning radius.

    But I'd own one again if'n I had the bucks!

    Talking The Infamous K1 Ergonomics (or lack thereof)

    That's too bad.... But, man, what a choice for your first Beemer!

    I hear ya. Once bought a set of factory K1 luggage for--get this--twenty-five bucks. It was a bit worn and dirty, but perfectly functional after a good cleaning.

    Heheh. Ah yes, the infamous K1 ergonomics. You do realize of course that the position of K1 foot pegs was established during the Spanish Inquisition, right?

    Rode my '91 K1 up to Michigan for the RA rally last summer. Even did an unplanned and unsanctioned Iron Butt ride (Saddle Sore 1000) by taking the long way home on the last leg of that trip--Waukegan, IL to C'vile via Bowling Green, KY. My knees were crying for mercy by the end of that one.

    Well, yeah, there is that too. But the upside is that one can pretend all those high-speed sweepers are tight and technically challenging twisties while riding a K1.
