Hello from Norfolk o/
« on: April 05, 2016, 01:39:48 PM »
Hi!

I put heart before head and got myself the bike I longed for - I now have a FAB new S1000XR…

Red - because its faster.

My previous bike was an F800GSA so all this power is something new to learn!

I need to still work my way though half the running in period and it’s killing me looking outside right now at the sunny skies. I could be riding if I wasn’t working.

Welcome Rachel

Enjoy the new bike but sorry to say white is definitely faster than red, which I can neither confirm or deny is faster than grey :150:

Even though this  :305: is red, its not the quickest I'm afraid, I have to agree with Binky !  :008:

We've been through this many times, chaps. BMW call it RACING red, so they know it's fastest, and even give the red ones a few more bhp at the factory. :001:

Welcome Rachel & enjoy the new toy :152:
This work thing is overrated isn't it ?


Rich, they only call it 'racing' to make you guys feel better about not having a white one
Imagine if everyone bought a white one just cos it's faster (& sexier obviously).... :038:
