BIG K75 fan here . . . have had a K75 and K75RT for years and think they're the most robust platform BMW ever made. Nobody ever called them hot rods or called them torquey, but they will run any speed (that you have any business doing on the street), any time, anywhere. And you can run around in fourth or fifth gear at most speeds. Rock solid.

Couldn't agree more. The k75 even has plenty of power for fun as a solo rider. But I won't be keeping this one forever. After it's finished I'll enjoy it for a little while and then sell it. The only reason being that the 75 just doesn't have enough grunt when riding 2 up. My wife and I took this on a long weekend trip with some friends last fall and while the bike did a commendable job, it left me wishing it had more to offer when fully loaded + a passenger.

I still have my Street Fighter 100 / 1100 ............. hmmmm must get it back on the road!

Let me know if you wanna sell the 1100. I want to do a new project out of one of them 😎
