Dang it, I meant S1000XR not S1000R.  :138:  It seems I'm too junior to modify my own posts.

S1000R - General Chat / Re: Questions from a S1000XR owner

Okay boys, so the S1000R deal was a no-go; I would have loved to get one, but the Mrs. shut it down. Got an equally awesome deal on a 2016 S1000R with 7 miles, you read that right, new sitting on a dealership floor. Same year as the one I had before, so it's a bike I know and love, plus all the mods transfer right over.  :007:

Are these the ones that stick out of the sides/fairings? I'm interested if so.

Correct.

Here’s a pic of them fitted. You’ll see them beside the red R logo.

Are you looking for just the frame slider for €150, ya?

I'm leaving Germany in a couple of weeks and will be touring to Barcelona, live there for around 3 months and then move on to the UK to stay there for another 2 months.

I was really excited to take my new s1000r for a long trip. But ever since I watched "Look Inside Britain's Moped Crime Gangs"
I'm paranoid as hell to get my new bike stolen.

How do you guys deal with this? We have a beautiful and expensive motorcycle which catches not only the eyes of the regular volk.

While staying in Barcelona I have the option to rent a garage for 150€ a month. Is this worth it for peace of mind?
I'm not only worried about theft but also about vandalism. Although I can't find much about Spain except some pick pocket issues in the big cities - the video made me paranoid.

I was planning to buy a cover, chain and some kind of tracker or alarm system. Are those really necessary?
Please let me know what you think!

How do you guys rate the probability of bike theft in Barcelona compared to London?

Thanks my friends!

Hey my dear friends!

I really appreciate the forum you have here and already spent countless hours looking through the threads about which gear to buy and which bags fit best on the s1000r.

BUT I don't even have the bike yet!

I'll buy it next week. It's my first bike. My first buy and my first everything, so please bear with me.

I have two options:

Buy a new one for 16k (this is euros - I'm from Germany)
Buy a used one for 13.5k (with 1-5k km driven and registered mid 2018)

I've also come across some demo models which are for sale. Are they a good deal or especially high risk because idiots rev them up while the engine is still cold?

Who has bought a used s1000r before (2017 model preferably). When do you first have to deal with things breaking etc?
How does the guarantee of BMW hold up to certain issues? In Germany we have a two year guarantee from BMW but I'm not sure what it covers.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!
I'm really looking forward to becoming a REAL member of this community.
