The K100RS

    This is my daily rider, a 1985 K100RS.  Previously owned by two different California Highway Patrol officers.  This bike is almost completely stock.  I added a 12V accessory outlet, and it was originally set up with higher bars off of a straight K100.  I've gone back and forth on returning the bike to the lower RS bars, but as yet I haven't been sufficiently inspired to do anything about it. The bike also wears stainless steel brake lines, which gives the front brake a very "immediate" feel.
The bike runs phenominally well, starting first try, no matter how long it's been sitting outside in the cold, wet air.  In my opinion, there were very few things that were done exceptionally well in the '80's, and BMW's K-bikes were a shining example of something great from that time.
