    Yes i have one ,great bike and it does fly. I can ride sitting upright at 200km/hr on speedo with ease. just be careful about leaving fuel in tank for too long .It contaminates damper rubber around fuel pump and will seize fuel pump. Been there already. Enjoy

    I owned a yellow K75 S in the mid 90's. Brilliant brick - except for the smokey joe bit.

    BMW had a problem that if the bike was on side stand, then some oil would seep through to the combustion chamber due to the heads being almost upside down.
    Problem was solved with a pin that stopped the rings rotating.

    Funny thing is that most of the sites tell you that if itís been standing for some time, itís best to squirt some oil into the cylinders before you try start her ....
