Hi everyone,
I'm 2 days away from taking delivery of my very own S1000R and all I can say is that from everything I've read and seen online, is that I am really looking forward to Thursday.
I have been riding since I was 16 and rode religiously for about 4 years, I then had to move out so stopped riding with a promise to myself to get another bike when I could afford to.
About 7 years ago I Had a couple of friends pass (very bad motorcycle accident which involved both of them) which really put me off riding, and it's only been the past couple of years where I have decided to get back on the horse.
My bike history is Aprilia RS50 (we all start somewhere), then onto an R6 - which blew up (not my best purchase), then a K4 GSXR 600 - so far my favourite bike, and then two ZX6R Ninjas - one of which I rode from the UK through France, Switzerland, and into Italy and back (and yes 100 miles into France I realised that I had taken the wrong tool for the job).  So yep that's about me all summed up! Hi everyone!, Dom

I saw one for sale from a dealer in Braintree is that the one you are buying as it looks really nice.
There are awesome bits of kit fast as you like with great brakes just watch out because they do not have the best turning circle at low speed
You will enjoy  :152:

Hi. I'm in Suffolk and plan on purchasing my own S1000R in the next few weeks. Test rode one in October and haven't been able to think of anything else since. Amazing machine.

I did see the one in Braintree but ended up buying one from Manchester. It's being delivered tomorrow and I cant wait. Only down side is that I dont want to tax it until Saturday or I pay a full months tax for one day (yes I know its only a few quid - but it's the principle), It also means I have a day to fit frame sliders etc... really excited! I'll keep an eye out for the turning circle - thanks!

Excellent! Maybe I'll see you about some day - Suffolk has some great roads (I used to work in Sudbury).
