Hi All,

Not got a S1000r yet, but a F900R. Might PX it for a liter bike for longer trips.  Will look through all the information and advice from you guys to make a decision.

Ride safe

Wunderlich bar risers and Marathon screen will convert the s1000r into a highly capable touring bike.  '17+ bikes have a longer end can that keeps the sound behind you so not as loud as the previous version's shorter can so less drone on longer rides. Also the '17+ bikes are smoother/less vibration in bars and pegs.

Some here praise the comfort of the Saddleman seat for long rides. I have one but have yet to put it on :/ .  I'm mostly satisfied with the BMW comfort seat that I now use.
