New Owner!
on: July 19, 2021, 05:02:48 PM
Hello all! Just sold my Triumph Speed Triple and am now the proud owner of a new (to me) 2017 S1000R! I loved my Speed Triple, but this thing is on the next level entirely - handles and turns like a 600-class naked and just so planted in the corners. Already looking to replace a) stock dog-ear mirrors with bar-ends and b) my goofy US DOT compliant front turn indicators with LED ones  :001:

Any recommendations?

Had an 08' Speed Triple and loved that bike as well but as you say, this is "next level" for sure.  The Beemer is a fun bike and plenty of good info on the forum to check out.  :821:

My 2017 sport has got the standard LED indicators. Super bright and look awesome. And it keeps it looking BMW 👍

I just threw a set of rear turn signals on the frontÖ
