Evening folks new member here. Having been a die hard super bike rider then a BMW GSA owner for the last 2 years i think I've found my ideal bike hopefully a mix of both worlds. Just handed my deposit over for a new S1000XR Sport SE in red  :001:

Good choice especially as the red ones are a lot faster than the other colours.

Yeah, my last bike was a GSA - and find that the XR does everything the GSA did for me - but also provides the desired:
* More power
* Smoother engine
* Lighter overall
* Road wheels and sports(ish) rubber.

Enjoy the bike!

Welcome aboard Tom,  I'm not sure the guys have got it right about the Red ones being quicker,  I shall be testing my black one as soon as the weather allows.  Be interested to see a pic of your dads one though.
