    Hey, finally got around to having a go on my brand new to me S1000XR
    It's a 2015 model with 15,000 miles, pretty much pristine condition. Very happy to be owning this at the age I'm but saving up paid off, quite literally.
    This bike is full spec with absolutely everything that it comes with, save for 1 thing:
    The DRLs. I heard very early models did not have them but people said you can have it retrofitted for free, any idea how would I go about convincing a BMW dealer to do that for me?
    Anyway. It's an absolute beast and feels amazing to ride. It inspires so much confidence that I was up to pace within 20 miles of riding it. Everything on it is just so nicely thought out and works. Previous owner fitted some goodies too, has all around R&G protectors, forks, engine cases, crash bungs and radiator guards, as well as the Evotech bar ends.

    Thanks everyone, I've had a thorough look over it and it is basically spotless. Tiniest scratch on the headlamps, barely visible, basically 0 rust apart from the usual exhaust discolouration. The bike has been religiously taken to bmw dealer for service every 3000 miles or so. It's had an oil and filter change at 11500,14700 and 15070 miles most recently. Bike only did 250 miles since 2018 but got fresh fluids and everything was checked over before delivery. Just had a 200 mile 2 up trip on it and it handles like a dream even with another person and the topbox on. Windscreen is pretty good but there is a small gap either side when in the upped position where wind comes through directly up my neck so I'll probably look into the famous MRA Vario touring screen everyone seems to have haha  :046:

    Glad you like it and it just gets better.

    Ref the MRA Vario, once I've cleaned the flies off mine it'll be up for sale on the forum .......
