2nd time around

Im back. I had an 08, traded it for a ST-1100. Traded that for a BMW,then got rid of that for a Intruder. Now Im back with an 87 650. Had a few bikes in the last 2 years. Glad to be back on a KLR, I missed it.
The 87 doesnt seem to have the electric cooling fan working, so I got work to do! See ya around!

Welcome back. What kind of Beemer did you have?

that doesnt sound right for a k. k indicates inline 4 if i remember correctly, 55 mph should be just starting for that motor

They made a k75 which was a 3 cylinder. Maybe it was one of those.

I wasnt trying to knock BMW's. This bike I HAD was called a "flying brick" for a reason. It was NOT a K1200....It was a K100. BIG difference.... I kept it 5 weeks, and traded it, at a loss..... Im glad to be back on a KLR
