I have been searching for an RT, either R or K, to some long distance touring. I recently saw a mid 80's K100 RS for sale. It is very low mileage, has maintenance records, 2 owners. So now I'm kind of lusting after an RS. Any thoughts on how it would perform as a long distance touring bike? I am 6'1" and wonder about buffeting over the windshield.
Also, as age has crept up, I have conflicting back issues. Lumbar stenosis likes me to lean forward. Diabetic shoulder pain likes me to lean back. Any thoughts from those who have ridden these and/or had these ailments?
Lousy winter weather here would preclude a test ride since ice and snow a still a reality. I'd be counting on the very low mileage. Blessings.
