Howdy folks, member from Mississippi. I ride a 2017 Goldwing and want to pick up a 2nd bike. I’ve narrowed it down to these two, a 1999 R1100rs and a 1994 K1100lt.
Your opinions are appreciated.

Thanks!

WELCOME ABOARD, and...



Other members do like to know they are welcoming a real person so thanks
for letting us know a little about yourself.:smile: Normally just a few more
posts(count of 3) and the rest of the site will open to you. This is the sites
spambot control. Unfortunately it is needed today. But you have to make 15
posts before you can post pictures. Right or wrong it's considered a privilege
to be able to post pictures. Unless you use Tapatalk which somehow
gets around that restriction.

We are friendly site here. Well, most of us:grin:

There's some differences between a R and a K model but either are good. If
you can, I'd ride both and that should tell you which one you like more. The
ride position is slightly different between to two so some people like one over
the other. I really don't think you can go wrong with either. But it's been awhile
since I owned a BMW, maybe others are more current and will know if there
are red flags to watch for.

Thanks! I’d love to ride them but they both are acr country in different locations. I’m leaning towards the RS but have heard good things on the K bike. Would love to hear comments
From other owners of these bikes.

Kawasaki! But I'm biased. Haven't had that particular bike, but I had the ZX1100. Probably same engine with a different tune and cams. I loved mine.

It depends on what kind of riding you'd like to do. You already have a mile eater highway cruiser. Although I have not ridden either of these models, it seems to me that the K bike would be closer to your Wing than the RS. I own and ride a R1150RT. The RS you're looking at has the same telelever front suspension as my RT. I am very impressed with my bike's handling on curvy roads. The almost complete absence of front end dive when you hit the front brakes makes the bike very forgiving.
