Hey 3-series, You need to see the video of the kid that flips his 740iL doing a burn out. Maybe the two of you can make a video together. Haha!

Of course. As I get it rebuilt from IPT to handle the Dinan Supercharger, Software, and other parts. I hope it does give out, just so I can get it rebuilt by IPT.

Hmm nice... What kinda bike? Im pretty sure you have but have you seen the S1000RR from BMW. So far its claimed a win against.. CBR1000, ZX1000R, GSXR1000, R1, Ducati, Aprillia, Haybusa, and ZX1400-R in speed, handling, dyno power, and some other categories.

And it costs 13,800.00 which is only $300 more than the 2011 R1, which again.. BMW took it. Oh and all the bikes listed were the 2011 except ZX14, Haybusa. Pretty damn good for first shot a the sport-bike from BMW and took everyone. But than again BMW has been making bikes forever. I heard its like impossible to get hold of one. Chris did and well check it out :P

Im riding a 2005 Ninja ZX-10. My track days are done for now. My last 1/8 mile pass was at 117mph in 7.1 sec. I really like that BMW. One day I will get one and be balanced between car and motorcycle. I have owned '2' R-1's , a Suzuki TL1000 (great bike), a ZX-6, and a ZX-7. My favorite is between my current ZX-10 and the TL-1000R.

That video was sick! Im in love!!!

Heck Yeah its a resonable price. Compare that bike to other sport bikes and I believe you would be more satisfied with the BMW. Lets see... BMW or a Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubushi.... HA! BMW all day!!!
