Paid my money made my choice
on: October 15, 2018, 05:34:20 PM
`So I went to the dealer today where on Friday I laid a deposit down sight unseen on a XR....
Now I  have paid outright on a 2015 S1000XR in Red ( it is the fastest colour obviously) with 2500 miles on the clock and FBMWSH
Oh the sound of that exhaust .... washed away the fatigue of the commute miles I did into London some years back and stirred something in my soul ... my love for biking which has been dormant for 4 yrs has awoken

Only 2500 miles on a 2015 bike - hardly run in.

Make sure it has had the anti vibration mod.  :305:

About the bars? Or that red ones are not the fastest?

The black line between the risers and top yoke. I though this was the fix, or am I mistaken?
