1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I prefer the K-bikes, myself. Always thought the opposed twin looked lumpy ... [​IMG]

    But if there was a bike to make me give up my K100RS it might just be this ST1300:

    To each his own, I'm not a fan of the flying brick, nor would I want to try to work on one... though the new K12S is pretty awesome.

    "the flying brick"! [​IMG]

    So true, but it's rock solid at stupid speeds and you can really log the mileage on it. "Working on it" for me is pretty much confined to putting the battery in and out, and that is enough of a nuisance, no doubt.

    I tried the K1200S at the dealer, but it kind of scared the crap out of me. I have gotten so used to the lumbering predictability of the K100 that the new Ks feel twitchy and jumpy. The new RS seems more sport than tourer, with the GT closer to my old model.

    Based on the instruments, I'm guessing a '78 or '79. Great bike.

    Not sure, but it does look like a WA license plate on there. It came from this page:

    Ya, I noticed the plate and thought you may have snapped the pic. I think that is one of the best looking bikes I have seen.

    Well, you could get cosmetically very close to that with pretty minimal investment. It would depend on whether you were really stuck on the monoshock conversion and the wheels, both of which would be quite expensive. But if you took a regular R75/5 and did a little chopping and judicious parts buying, you could come up with a very clean looking cafe bike for a decent price.

    I still haven't got over this. That said, if you took everything I know about motorcycles and stuck it in your eye, it would not impair your vision in the least.
