Newb from Pennsylvania - USA
« on: September 12, 2019, 10:49:53 PM »
Hi everyone, this is only my second street bike and I'm coming off a Yamaha FZ09. I bought my Ocean Blue in January and stared at for 4 months until winter was over and I could ride. I'm finally getting around to proudly joining the S1000XR forum where I've been lurching for the last 9 months. Love this bike!

Welcome! I am also based in the US.

Do you have any mods planned? The bike is fantastic as is but I can never help myself...

Enjoy the bike and the mods...

Thanks for the welcome everyone! I'm from North East PA - Pocono Mountains just south of Scranton. Yes, my bike is low seat - low suspension. I'm a short guy with short legs so it's a good fit. Just did the usual mods, wind screen, rad & oil guards, frame sliders, etc.
