I'm 66 and 1/2! I'm too old to be riding such a bike! Did BMW Training and Track Day at Silverstone Tuesday - had a ball with instructer Bob and a Steve Plater. Top blokes! Didn't get my knee down (don't hang off enough!) but learnt a lot - rode to Silverstone and back - result! My bike was amazing - too much for this pensioner - but I love this S1000R Sport - 130mph and still pulling like a train - lovely!

That's awesome, not too many people get to experience and event like that. I too do track days on a track prepped 6R and it is a lot of fun.

You're never too old, I'm 72 and sold a 200 bhp Gen 2 VMax to buy my S1R, where abouts in Brum are you?
Most of my life, I drank whiskey, rode bikes, and chased women..........the rest of it I just wasted.

Am I the only one under 30 with an R?

I must be single-handedly bringing the average age of BMW riders down. It's true I don't see many near my age at my local dealers...

Spoilt these days with all the technology allowing you to go faster whilst being safer. Gives us older blokes a better chance if we stuff up  :152:
