For me it's oil and water rad guards, just ordered mine, should be in time for when the bike arrives hopefully, those rads looks just to vulnerable.  :305:

I think these look a bit agricultural not stylish enough for me on such a modern bike. Don't be too hasty to buy the first offering there will be lots to choose from within a very short period once the bike is here.

Thats an "aussie" company, you going to get it shipped over ?  If the shipping is reasonable then I guess it's ok but surely there's a company a bit nearer than Oz ?

Well its shipped est date of 8th of June, just in time also ordered the panniers, HE sport seat reg height and tinted screen, going away on it to the south of France in July so plenty of time to run it in when the bike arrives in the next two weeks.
Update : Its just arrived at Heathrow , if I get it this week I think that would be incredible.

Do you not what the official running in recommendation is from BMW for the S1000 engine?

Is it not like the S1000R then? under 7000RPM for the first 300KM, then under 9000RPM until 1000KM? or just thrash it ;)  :305:
