I have a 1993 R100RS. The only comparison I have was a 1988 R100RT but I like the RS far more than I did the RT.
Seems like it has more oomph. I've only had the mono levers so I wouldn't know what the previous models rode like, but I like my 93. Comfy and zippy. Carries me & my GF and all our stuff with relative ease.

Many of you have seen pics here before.

I bought a K100 RS Turbo And I have 4 other bikes.

No pics yet, but $3300 sound about right?

Just throwing it out there. Gonna try to sell for real in a month or so.


You ever sell that bike?

I just spent the last hour going through old R100R threads and this one hit me as being one of the best. It's worth reviving.

I was recently considering the purchase of a '74 R90S basket case - one that is missing many very expensive parts. I decided to do my homework on these very desirable machines and found myself straying back to the idea of getting a '92 - '95 R100R and throwing an 'S' fairing on it instead. I've been sorting my spare parts cache and I'm amazed at what I have on hand to keep a pair of late model R100s going indefinitely. So I am now actively looking for a garage mate for my '94 R100GS.

Is anyone seeing any of these low mileage R100R's for sale in their area anymore? I can say that I am coming up short in my hunt - not that I'm in a hurry here - I can wait until the right machine comes along. Tell me what you're seeing out there.

One of my favorite runs of the airhead for sure. Refined yet maintains the simplicity we all love about the model.

They are out there to buy but I have not seen too many as of late.

You know this but... keep a close eye on Cycle Trader, Craigslist, Ebay, IBMWR, MOA Flea market even some dealer sites for trade ins. You'll almost always pay more thru a dealer than a private sale. Repsycle (sp?)BMW in Ohio always has an interesting lot of airheads for sale as well.

Good luck and keep us posted on what you find. I'll PM if I see anything.

I've been checking Craigslist, Ebay, IBMWR and a few local dealers - I'll wait until the right one comes along. Now that the R90S idea is out of my brain, I will tend to focus more on this area of pursuit.

I'm curious, did you have to rejet the bings on the way up and down? I just got myself an r100r, live at sea level and at 8000ft and wonder if I need two sets of jets.
