Good move by your pal podders  :028:

It's amazing what the "classics" are fetching these days

Thats a fact...My local BMW dealer, Wollaston, has a nice collection(the GMs) in its showroom inc a 250LC, KH250 and a RD125LC, he did ask if I wanted to PX my RD500 on the S1000R but I said he'd owe me a few quid as well and that ended that deal...great bunch at Wollaston BMW.

Damn, I hated that freaking bike.  It's wonder I stuck with the sport.

Lol, yeah good times!
I was 17, I didnt know any better. Had some wild times on that bike...its a wonder I didnt kill myself.
My shovelhead wasnt much better but it had electric start.
When you stop to think about it we have come a really long way. From so little to one of the best bikes in the world.
 I have learned so much over the last two years from this bike.





You should remember that its peace of mind youre after and not just a fixed machine.

Maybe the question should be what was your first bike and what others lead you to own the S1Kr.  :084:

My first bike was a black Suzuki RG125 bought new. I lusted after a TZR125 but they were thin on the ground. Owned it for 6 months before it was stolen and stripped down. Borrowed a CB100 and soon learned differences between 2- and 4-stroke when, on the first outing, I accidentally did a massive wheely away from traffic lights.

MV Augusta Brutale 800 Dragster, sold it very quick as it was too wild for me.

Replaced it with the a 2010 Triumph Street Triple R. Still got it, as it is my favorite bike!
