Bor_S new to the S1000XR Forum
on: July 14, 2019, 02:03:46 PM
Hello All, new to the forum. my name is Rob, living in Nederland and commuting to Amsterdam for my work hole year round, using the motor. Driving motorcycles for over 35 years.
Owned a couple off beamers (and  a lot of other brands) some boxers, and old brick, and in 2005 a R1200S.  After that back to boxers and this week I am gone trade it for a 2018 XR.  a demo with only 1800km.
already did a lot off reading the forum and enjoying it.

p.s. still own a boxer, and enjoying it.

Very nice, and great color scheme, nearly as good as the Red.   :041:

Small update, 
Driving for a while with the bike,  still love it.   It has done a bit more then 30.000km.
Apart from some minor updates, a other windscreen, a chainoilier, some small Leds on the side off the bike, and in a H7 led in the headlight, it is still almost stock.

On the way back from our holiday from Sweden, the bike developed a bit of a noice in the cilinderhead.
It was time for a set off new cams.    BMW first they tried to split the bill 33 / 66%, but with some pressure  from my dealer, BMW agreed to handle the bill in light off coulance (bike was out off te 2 year factory warranty)

In the next week or so, a set off black widows headers and a ECU flash are on the agenda.
