New to me BMW S1000R, its my second one of these monsters and TBH I don't know why I sold my 15 one! Another thought of 'I'm not using it so sell it!'

So toy room complete, Well I think it is........until the next thing pops into my head 😂

Nice garage full of toys there!You didn't pick the S1000r up from AH Superbikes by any chance?
No, privately, didn't know they had one. I was very tempted by Hurst's Speed triple RS but it's not as clean as I'd like. Great bike though.

I test rode a few bikes as I've been bike less for just over 2 years now (pissed about the NCD on my insurance 🤬) and realised I still love 1000's. A Street Triple 765 RS was just a revving machine to me.

The bike got its first outing today........yes its first!!!! Too busy with 3 jobs and a Lotus to enjoy!

Love it though I am a bit rusty after 2 years bike less, the auto blip downshifting is great, I didn't think I'd like it but I think I will.

I've had faster bikes but no one needs more go than one of these, maybe I'm getting old and sensible.

I don't think I'll change anything on the bike, the only thing an S1000R needs is a screen and it's already got one, without it's pretty unpleasant at 70moh never mind more.

Givi phone mount fitted and a Wunderlich carbon tank bag ordered, had one on my last S1000R and really liked it.

Daft Eddie's first customer this morning.......
