 :400: Very cool!  Big difference coming from the RT boxer.  I suspect the S1KR wont disappoint   :821:

Had my third test ride today, must have done 500 miles in total!
Definitely a very different beast!

Congratulations!!

I too did my share of research before making my decision. The bike ranks in my all time top 5 I have owned in over 45 years of riding. Still can't walk past it in garage without stopping to study it, even when carrying groceries..... :046: :046: :047: :047:
