Extra details etc:
This bike is one of the last of the 998cc (8 valve engine) K100RS models. It was produced as a "Special Edition" in the Blue & White BMW Motorsport livery and was supplied with ABS and a colour coded "belly-pan". The bike comes with pannier racks and top box mountings and has a colour-coded BMW top-box with integral pillion back rest and matching BMW panniers (see picture). It is also fitted with two-setting BMW heated grips. A taller screen was fitted by the last owner, however this caused some turbulence to Chris & me at 6' 6" and 6' 4" respectively, so the additional few inches have been removed to bring this to the standard length... without the additional air-flip.
This model was one I had been after for some years.
During my ownership of this machine I replaced the following parts
maintenance, in addition to servicing (which is not shown below) and
with a desire to get the machine into
original spec' as I intended keeping this machine for many years to
come. However a call from an ex-colleague, out of the blue led to
me selling him the bike in July 2010. Its a classic, in my eyes, so I hope he looks after it.

During the 9 years, 2 months I had the bike the figures are as follows...
Mileage covered - 17,825 miles; using
357 gallons of fuel (= 50 mpg) at a cost of £1,530. Servicing,
tyres and spare parts etc. = £2,606
Not bad for 9 years I think. £460 per year not counting road tax, insurance and depreciation.
