BMW K1. Dream bike or nightmare?

BMW made 'old cock engines'. That was clearly the perception of the more dynamic motorcyclists after the arrival of the large, fast Japanese four-cylinder. But sturdy blond techies with square foreheads above their blue eyes can of course also go crazy. Also at BMW. If you just give them the chance. So the BMW K1.
Honda CBR600F 88

Honda CBR 600 F. Pretty pointless now. But quite nice.

For many of us, 1986 still feels like yesterday. But a motorcycle from that year is already 35 years young. In the summer of 1986, the motorcycle world was even different. It was the time of fairings and sporty but usable engines. In the XNUMXs, motorcycles were still supplied as all-rounders. You made them sporty after purchase by means of a low handlebar, rear-set footrests (Raask!) A sports buddy and an exhaust system that loudly supported the sportiness. Touring riders mounted higher handlebars and bags or suitcases. The XNUMXs were also the years when motorcycles became reliable.
