Best laid plans
on: October 14, 2020, 02:46:14 AM
Hello all!

Thought I'd get back into motorcycling after 15 years out of the saddle.  I went to the dealer looking for a sport touring machine -- maybe a Versys, or FJ-900.

But then I saw this sweet 2017 S1000R sitting in the corner.  Pristine condition.  Full sport package with upgrades. 

Not what I went looking for but... I have never written a check so fast.

I think your are really going to like the bike.   a 15 year hiatus from riding is a big gap from the Moto tech that is available on today's bikes. hope you get some good miles on her before ol' man winter creeps up on us.   :821:

awesome!  see you out there!
A veteran is someone who, at one point in their life wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount up to and including their life.
