    For Jack Riepe and the Secret K-Bike Society ...

    Good Morning Jack

    We were teaching an MSF Advanced rider class yesterday for the Louisiana Department of Public Safety, Motorcycle Safety, Awareness and Operator Training Program. One of the class members was Brian Barbieri riding his 1994 K75 to uphold the interests of the Secret K-Bike Society, among a flock of R and G Beemers also attending. The class looked like a BMW rally with exception of a v-twin cruiser, a couple of dirt bikes and a new Gold Wing.

    The interesting thing about this K is that Brian found it literally under someone's front porch with very little mileage on it and in bad shape from non-use. He rescued the bike, did lots of maintenance and parts replacement and put it back on the road.

    That is one very sweet find!

    Probably would make a great article or blog post.
