At 72 I'm on the down hill side of that chart though.  :018:

At 56, I can only hope to be you when I grow up! :001:

Windy, how frequently do you change bikes? :D

About every year ... yes I have a commitment problem.  If AF1 opens a store near me I am in a whole lot of trouble ;)

And this is why I love the s1000r's brakes.

In fact, it has spoiled other brakes for me.

One highlight of the 765 RS was its breaks. Very good feel and linear increase in stopping power as lever is pulled. That, its fueling, and its chassis are the highlights. I still think the daytona 675 motor (I loved my '15 daytona 675R-wish I'd kept it) was way better than those found on the street triples.

I'm waiting for the 765 Daytona to become a thing!

I got both.

S1KR is the best bike I have ever owned.
But the STR is and always will be my favorite bike.


^^ this. Couldnt agree more (also own both)

Sometimes I feel the sk1r is just a little TOO good.. and thats sort of a negative about it
