Hi from South Hampshire
« on: July 20, 2015, 03:37:05 PM »
Hi - presently on a 2013 S1000RR.  Test rode the XR on Saturday.  Then met Baron Von Grumble at Odiham airfield on Sunday - he was caning round the track day on a demo XR from Bahnstormers - and beating virtually everyone in the fast group on it lol.

Just need to decide if I can afford a new bike.  I was incredibly impressed by the test ride - the bike ticked every box for me, comfy, hoofing quick and all the toys one expects from a beemer these days.

 :400:  Welcome to the forum.  You've come to the right place to get more info from others who now own the bike.
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

Hi and welc mate get it bought my man, surely the rr would make a hefty deposit?... The Baron is a legend, is he as funny in real life?

Cheers and I have - delivery in 3 weeks !!  Chopped in the RR and my back is going to thank me for it.  Actually the day I took my bike in to be valued I met the Baron again at the dealer (we share the same motorrad dealer) - he was dropping off the test XR he had been given.  And yes he is as funny in real life, clearly knows his stuff about bikes and has a great sense of humour.
