<next track bike>

Postby sweatmark » Fri Jul 29, 2016 7:50 pm

<next track bike> has been in my profile signature since selling beloved Buell XB 4 or 5 years ago. But no longer.

Just rode home on S1000R, the next and probably final sports-bike/track-bike for yours truly. I cannot imagine needing or wanting anything more... it's all the things the R1150R Rockster is not, and vice versa.
Now: Rockster2, F800S, S1000R, K1300S
Then: R850R, R1100R, R1150R, Rockster1, R1200C, etc.

The S is brilliant. Shreds mountain roads, and that's while still in Rain mode until the 600 mile service. Machine is much more capable than my riding skills.

beauty.

I sat on, but did not ride one at the dealer a few weeks ago. Agree on the "capable" statrment. It felt like a race bike. Small and light....no frills Sort of felt like bar risers, a softer seat and a flyscreen it would be more my comfort zone. Oh, and 50 less horsepower/3000 less rpm. haha

ENJOY!

350 miles on the S today, now ready for 600 mile service.
The Rockster's role as road trip bike is safe for now.
Now: Rockster2, F800S, S1000R, K1300S
Then: R850R, R1100R, R1150R, Rockster1, R1200C, etc.
