    Introduction: Philip Carlson

    Just put about 500miles on my new '85 K100RS last week, lots of 50 mile freeway runs out of Salt Lake. Lots of fun. Much more stable than the Naked Gold Wing I've been riding. Warmer too!

    I need to figure out how to get the grip warmers working again.

    I also noticed that the fork gets crazy when I let the throttle go with little or no pressure on the handlebars at 45MPH. Haven't tried that much faster, doesn't seem to do this under 25.

    About to bid on a 22L trunk, but thought a larger Givi might be more versitile.

    Wobble as described is usually caused by loose steering head bearings. There are some other possibilities but that is where I would start because if the bearings are a little loose that will happen every time.
