10 years on
In june 1998 I owned a 1984 GPZ1100, the one with the fuel gauge on the tank, nice riding position and not to slow at all, on one of my trips to the local bike shop I spotted a k100rs out front for sale, black with white wheels, floating disks, 16 valve engine and one of the best standard exhaust's I had seen on a K, 54k on the spedo, 91 model in good condition. I felt it was time for a change, I have rode jap bikes for years and no matter how much you spend on keeping the machine goin, when it came time to sell you lost more than you had spent. So after some research, I found the only negative was the price of parts, yes nothing is cheap if it has the flying propeller logo on it.
Deal done my GPZ & $7000 I now ride a german bike, I soon was used to the silly indicator switches (dont use them), but the motor took a while to learn how to extract the best from the power it has, once the art is learned it is surprisingly quick.
Not a superbike but at the end of a full days ride you feel like going back and doin it again very comfy no stiff neck no sore knees. I have now owned "Stella" over 10 years, am I happy yeah will I sell it Never.
