Not sure I understand your room for a trailer constraint, but I've rented UHaul trailers for like $25 a day that are specifically designed for 1 or 2 bikes. Work great and take no room at home since they are rented by the day.

$75 a day in my area, Southern California. Did that once, never again. I called my local dealer and they said they see guys that haul with these types of carriers all the time

Tyres and Wheels / Re: Anyone currently running a 200/60 Rear?

I've run Pirelli SC0 and SC1 race tires in a 200/60.  They also grow in diameter as speeds get higher.  This is a feature, not a bug.
The rear hugger has to be removed, but otherwise there are no problems at all.

Spot on, Cheers Miles  :152:

I'll likely give them a try and see how i get on with them.

Bikers Chat / Ever had an issue with hitch carriers?
« Last post by Cutter on Today at 04:55:22 PM »
Have you ever used a hitch carrier and had a problem?

Iím about ready for my first track day, I just have to figure out how to get the bike there. I donít have room for a trailer (even a fold up) and I canít remove my camper shell. I have this hitch carrier that is very heavy duty. I would put my s1r on the ramp closest to the truck, and use a bunch of tie downs. I used to put two dirtbikes and a quad upright on this carrier at the same time, behind an old RV.

Need to find an extremely proper way of tying the bike to the hitch, so I can camp out of my shell at the track

Welcome.

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......

2019 Sport model in black with 2700 miles on the clock and BMW service history.

Tail tidy.

Slightly smaller rear plate.

Ventura rack.

Slightly larger screen.

Apart from that it's standard.

I still have the original bits.

Yes it does have Dynamic Pro enabled  :038:
