Hi everyone from a Greek in Ireland
« on: July 13, 2018, 08:03:55 PM »
Hello all,

My name is Panos, I am a greek living in Ireland, Cork area.

A got a new s1000xr 2 months ago, 2200 km on it at the moment.
I had a gsx-r for 4 years and after my wife's "blah blah you are going to kill your self blah blah blah", I sold it and I got a GS1200R 2008. I just found the bike boring and the boxer engine weird so I decided to get the s1000xr.

Actually, I would prefer the s1000rr but... anyway.

The reason I joint the forum is because I have an issue with the bike. Not sure if it is just my idea but I find it very very 'unstable' on high speeds (190-200+)

I saw that there is already a thread about this so I will continue there.

PS. My English is not very good. I hope that it is not terrible though :)

Welcome Panos. Not too many from Ireland on here

If your wife thinks the XR is gonna slow you down I think she sanctioned the wrong bike  :164:  Especially if you're trying to do 190-200 (which I presume is KPH ?) on Irish roads

Did you buy in Keary's ? How were they to deal with ?
