    BMW related stuff, as I said I don't wanna get in trouble again  :745:

    I wonder if the MY24 of the S1000XR gets some of the "smart" features of the GS. It already has self levelling so i wonder if will get that centre stand support etc. They also claim there is a new auto headlight feature? Is that the same as the GS where it moves the whole headlamp to adjust for load? Or is that just the old cornering lights bit being standard now?
    Fair enough.  I may be in the minority, but I really hate the painted beak on the 24's.  If I got a '24 I'd rattle can them black.

    Hi, my first post but I have been lurking here for a while, reading.

    I have just let go of my M-XR order slot as it is clear that the M-XR isn't going to be available with the lowered suspension option (at least, not initially). Indeed, I have plumped for a 23 model S-XR that is in stock as you cannot even get the 24 S-XR with lowered suspension if you have the M pack.

    Anyway, just FYI for those with their hats still in the M-XR ring: the full Owner's handbook is available to download and read on the BMW website.

    In fact, another thing that did it for me with the M-XR is that there is an overwhelming emphasis on track usage of the bike in terms of the TFT and the handlebar controls (as gleaned from the handbook); this is a minor point, I know, but it felt like half of the bike's functions were going to be irrelevant to me. I may miss that shift-cam engine, though...

    I am looking forward to reading here how those of you that end up on M-XRs get on with them.
