    1994 K75, 34k miles - Came back to my senses

    I got the idea of selling to capitalize for a potential business expense. Iíll keep my K and trust in God for expenses. I do have some capital in hand.
    I had to admit that this bike can not be replaced by anything better. One of the many superlatives that came to mind is the dynamo power electric system. I can just plug in my upper and lower Gerbings, and for that matter, a microwave oven if I want. Reality in northern VA means, sometimes itís cold here. Nothing can run electric gear like a K bike, except a wall socket in my house! Then, thereís the heated grips.
    I was sick. Now Iím feeling better. I feel a spline lube session coming on.

    Cheers,
    Bill

    Bill,

    Every once in awhile, we all make the right decision.

    A friend of mine, now passed, used to say, " they're cheap to keep". I always think of that when I ponder selling one of my motorbikes. Chunk.

    I've been looking for a relatively low-mileage well-kept K75 for a while now. Preferably a K75S, but I'm not that choosy. I've read that they are smoother than the K100. Is the K75 smoother than the 2000 K1200RS that I have? If so, then the K75 must be really damn smooth!

    Be choosey, they're great bikes! The bikes are probably the same smoothness, but the K 75 has NO rubber mounts or bar end weights to minimize the vibration (like your bike has), because the K75 doesn't need it.

    Here's a great looking one across the bay from me in San Francisco. It's one of my he last 50 ever built. The price is more than fair if it is as nice as it looks in the ad.

    I felt the smoothness of our K75s were similar to our K1200RSs up to 80 MPH.
    Above 80 the K1200RS was smoother.
