New S1000XR Owner County Durham
on: October 12, 2016, 04:52:26 PM
Hi, I'm Rob, live near Durham in the UK. Just traded in a 12 month old 11,000 mile Ducati Multistrada which I had no end of problems with  :232:  for the S1000XR, wow what a good bike it is, really pleased with it.  :152:

Mods so far, Beowulf Radiator and Oil Cooler Guards, Paddock Stand Bobbins.

I have just ordered the Akrapovic Stainless headers, unsure which silencer to go for as yet but possibly the Mivv Suono in Black.

Some pictures of Helga the day I brought her home.  :164:
Current additions are Beowulf oil and radiator guards.
Akrapovic Headers are here to be fitted with a Mivv Suono Black Silencer.

Hi
enjoy the new bike. I got mine just last week.  My first impressions are all positive (except the heated grips).  I will look out for you when I am out and about :)
