New member from southern Illinois
on: March 11, 2018, 02:35:36 PM
I’m glad I have found this forum, tried to join the other for 6months. I’m from southern il USA and this is my first bmw. It’s a 2016 red s1000xr , I’ve had 2 ducati monsters and a few kawis but I wanted something better for me and the wife. The gs would have been a good choice but I like power! Now I just need to get it a little more comfortable for some longer 2 up trips and panniers.

Welcome Cranky Yankee. Good to see the Heartland making an entrance.
There's aftermarket seats and pegs that should add more comfort. Shouldn't be a problem.

We don't really talk about bikes all that much.  Mostly about beer, wine, dancing midgets, cross-dressing and issues with man parts. 
That being said, feel free to start a thread about bikes  :001:

Knob creek single barrel and anti monkey butt powder will help issues with the nether regions.

Hi Cranky,
Welcome to the forum, have ridden in most of the States over the last 12 years of owning a USA bike and keeping it in Florida. I can safely say I’am jealous of your home, I live in the north of England where it appears to rain all the time. Bytheway have you visited “Wheels Though Time” in Maggy Valley? What a great place.
