BMW K100RS Special EditionK100RS Special Edition (08 May 2001 - 14 July 2010)

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 through routine 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.

Note:

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.
