    One of the most bullet proof bike BMW ever made except ...

    for the splines.

    Just make sure they are lubricated and enjoy the ride.

    Post the route and the dates and I suspect more than a few of us will ride part of the way with you.

    Hey, a couple of years ago I went by myself to New Zealand just to ride the countryside. Take lots of pictures.

    No point setting small goals for yourself. I assume the only way is to Slab it in that time frame. I personally can't stand I-95. Good luck. Stay alert. Make sure you obey the posted speeds through VA. 15 over will cost you 1500 bucks.

    Hey Paul,

    Drive shaft and Diff have been replaced...KYUSE is smooth as silk up to a "C" note in mph.

    Christ Church (chichi), is a place I would like to return to... I,ll keep you posted on my planned adventure from Eastport to Key west..

    Why is it the more I ride my K75 the more I enjoy and value it?

    Thanks---I 95 north of DC to Boston really sucks but is as much a challenge as the western runs through the deserts and mountains. Timing your run is really the key. I have a son in VA. a daughter in FL and a crazy sister in Key West...what more can I ask for

    Nope. Folks live in NOVA. The state admits that it is a revenue generator. You will notice throughout the state that you will generally pass everyone if you do more than 10 over.

    15 over = $1,500??

    And you haven't yet revolted, why? The Brits are destroying speed cameras (and posting pics of the results on the Internet) for a fine that's less than 1/20 of $1,500 in USD. What happened to us?
