johngvca, Where do you live? Do you park your K1200GT with the keys in the ignition?

So this my very first bike and I am loving this motorcycle. 61k miles on the clock. I have less than 1000 miles under my belt. The bikes seems to fit me will, but I do find that my arms get a bit tired on my rides. I am thinking of changing the "S" handlebars to the "C" bars.

I've just recently realized a long-time dream of riding a motorcycle... how's this for a first bike? (thanks to my brother-in-law)... a rare yellow '94 K75S...

Hello. My name is Temple, and I saw your bike on the forum, and I have a question. Did you have the luggage covers painted to match your bike? Do they have the rough , texture surface or are smooth. I have the rough surface and I've wondered how they would look painted.

Slick Finish Bags
I have refinished a set of grained bags on my K100LT. A body man gave me the instructions.

3. 2 or 3 coats of gray primer to level the surface.
4. Lightly spray with black spray can primer then block sand (320 grit) the black off. This will level the primer.
5. Lightly sand with 600 grit to smooth
6. 2 or 3 coats of urethane color
7. 2 coats of urethane clear.
8. Buff with 1000-1500 rpm foam pad buffer and polishing compound (finer than the Turtle Wax white in the can). I used Mequairs.
The bags rivaled those on a new BMW.
Got to do it again, I dropped the bike in a parking lot. Thought the side stand was down.

Back to the Beemer family...
After being away from Beemers for almost 2 years, picked up a low mileage, very well maintained 1987 K100RS for a great price. Fellow I know bought a new RT and couldn't stand the trade-in offer he was given by the dealer, sold it to me..
First K Bike, brought it home Saturday and still can't get over how smooth it gets the faster you go..
