I'm pretty sure I could ride like that if I had an orange bike.

So far the only riding ability my orange bike has given me is the ability to crash at higher speeds.

Oh SO true.

With that being said,
The talent level of the pilot is FAR less than the talent level of my bike.

Crashing at higher speeds is just as easily accomplished on other bikes, it just takes a little longer to reach terminal velocity.

It's not the power, it's the suspension. It does such a good job of soaking up the rough stuff that you don't realize how fast you're going until you come to an abrupt stop

Will probably regret it, but I just put my K75 in the flea market if you happen to know anyone that might be interested.

Also, looking for an 1100/1150GS to keep out west with the DR if you know anyone that has one they're looking to part with.

Do you want me to look for a GS out here for you...? I am in San Diego until the 21st this gig and I return in mid January...

Nice looking K75...

Best,
Rob

Thanks . . . I'd like to find something around the New England area and ride it out to AZ in Jan, or pick one up in AZ when I'm out there this winter, but I'd consider a good deal just about anywhere if going to get it wouldn't screw up my current travel plans too much.

ummmm not to play the captain obvious role here, but why not just ride the K75 out and leave IT there. I'm sure that there are other considerations, but that is a sweet K!
