    1990 K75. New bike (to me) and new to forum. Louisville, KY

    I just got back into motorcycling after a 20 year hiatus. Previously I had owned two Snortin' Nortons but the riding it to working on it ratio was about 50/50. Not that I disliked working on the bike but the proportion was just not ideal.
    So I picked up a nice K bike. It's the low seat version and I probably would have been better served with the taller saddle but I just had to get back on a bike. Besides I think I can fix that minor issue.
    One thing I've noticed, car drivers seem to be more distracted than when I rode previously. I got a couple of fabric protective jackets that are way nicer than in the past. I'm looking forward to some nice trips in the future.

    Welcome. The K75 requires as little ongoing maintenance as any bike I know of. I'm sure you will find the wrench to ride ratio a lot different than with the Nortons.
