Howdy all

New to the forum, after getting a 1990 K100RS project earlier this year and getting that going, I just purchased a 1999 K1200 RS a couple of weeks ago. Just loving the bricks so far. Anyway I do appreciate a the vast knowledge on this site. I'm located on Vancouver Island , British Columbia so maybe a shorter riding season than some of you

Love the color of that 99RS. I've never seen that before, especially the matching rims, nice. It seems as if everyone on this site has had a KRS. If they have defected to newer models, not to worry, they'll be back! The KRS is fast becoming the bike they wish they never sold. You found yourself a jewel. You did right my friend, you did right.

I defected - but could never sell the old Brick.

Welcome, lovely example; you will love owning and riding the RS.
