New S1000R owner
on: January 16, 2021, 10:12:51 AM
Hi all

Good to be on the site, and looking forward to ‘meeting’ you.

Former sports bike owner from East Sussex, England, old enough to know better than buy a 165bhp road sportsbike but cant seem to control myself!

My favourite bikes have all been sports bikes and after a dalliance on a GSA realised that bigger comfy bikes just wont get ridden!

Previously i have had loads of FireBlades ( 954RR was my favourite) , Aprilia RSV, BMW HP Sport , Blackbird, ZZR1400, BMW S1000RR ( probably my overall favourite!), Ducati 749 & 999s and now the S1000R

I could probably retire with all the money i have spent on bikes lol, so now looking for a reasonable comfy sportsbike, with that epic 1000cc engine, and have always loved BMW’s

Just got a fab deal on the existing model with Motorsport paint, and all the goodies, ahead of the new 2020 machine which is coming in soon. I prefer the existing dash to the new ‘ipad’ display, and love the bike as it is so happy with that!

Sorry to ramble on......

Cheers all, Mike , aka Harlequin

Also went the same route as yourself, fantastic deal on a San Marino blue with a few extras on it.

Mind you, what I've spent on her so far......
