Years ago I bought a salvage title, wrecked 1992 K1100 RS much to the dismay of my closest BMW dealer here in Ventura County. "Why would you be so careless to buy a salvage title bike", its "junk", "worthless". I insisted that I wanted to restore the bike and ride it. Needless to say, I chose another BMW shop locally that sold me used parts for the rebuild which I did myself.

I put around 10K miles on the bike as my daily commuter before selling the bike with salvage title to someone who fell in love with his "blue baby". I was young, with perhaps too much passion, and I took a hit of around $1500 for the bike but I have no regrets.
