It is well documented that those "soul less" K bikes will carry you far in relative comfort... not unusual for the 80's Ks to clock hundreds of thousands of miles with regular maintenance and not much else. That early ABS is troublesome for sure but there are plenty around without it. Compared to many other bikes, the brakes are quite adequate. My 88 K100 was way more "modern" than my 93 R100RS, and I had a lot of fun throwing it around, over the years. The rare cumbersome at low speeds but more nimble than you'd think once you get one rolling.
People denigrate the Ks but I, for one, like em. I had that 88 and now own an 02 K1200RS. It's a keeper.
