Hi all, my name is Greg, been riding bikes for 12 years, first bike was a CBR600, too big too early as crashed it 3 times in 3 years so sometimes smaller is better. Then had K4 750 GSXR for 3yrs, followed by 02 R1 for 3yrs, then back to GSXR 750 K6 which was the best bike I had owned until now... well hopefully Thursday when I am due to collect my 2018 S1000R Sport!!

Yes having test ridden one from Cannon BMW in Braintree in August I couldn't get it out of my head, even after trying the Triumph Speed Triple and the Yamaha equivalent I was hooked on the BM so bit the bullet before the wife changed her mind lol.

I mainly use my bike for commuting and the odd trip to Ireland to visit family and friends but never been much further, would love to go Europe while I have 2yrs free breakdown so anyone organising a trip or any good companies happy for recommendations.

 :400: You'll have a great time touring on the beemer. Wish I was on mine when I went through Europe. Read up on the speeding consequences for Switzerland though  :084:

A great bike, you wont regret it ! The 18 definitely blows the MT10 and SpeedTrip out of the water !

Welcome! Cool bike mate, I've just got the 2015 Sport a fortnight ago. I'm in love with it, such a missile, and so well equipped. Can't wait for drier roads though... Hopefully see you around I'm from Braintree and was in Cannon a week ago with the mrs having breakfast - it's a great dealership.
