Surfing through local Craigslist, found this 85 K100 w/22k mi. for sale at good price. Showed up to take a look, seller was tired of people calling but never show up. Battery is dead, jumped it with a car battery and fired it up. talked some more and made a deal under $2k. Bike came with side cases, spare ECU, hall effect sensor, windshield and aftermarket rear shock.
For a 25 year old bike, it's not in too bad of shape.
Tires are 4 years old, but has plenty of tread..
Brake lines are OEM, I should look for some replacement ones ASAP..
Brakes squeal like mad when close to stop.... but quiet when you get on them hard at speed..
Riding it feels like steering a Mack truck engine, you're really "on" the bike rather than "in" the bike. But it does run pretty smooth.. no odd shaking or vibe..
Shifting is a bit rough, likely need a spline lube... that's gonna take a few weeks.
State inspection sticker is good until May 2011, maybe I'll ride it around until then before tackling the spline lube.
I'm getting myself a vintage license plate..
Don't know how much of a GasSaver it might be..

Those were a result of overfills because I filled the tank while the bike was standing upright in the back of my truck, instead of on the kickstand. I also accidentally entered one entry for the pickup truck on the wrong log, when I get the data for another fillup this will be corrected.
