Looks great Karl! It seems like you may be doing some longer distances on this bike? How comfortable is it? I can't imagine that kind of power Do you have any sound clips of the exhaust?

its not bad for comfort, I just got back from a 239 mile ride over 4 hours
got off the bike once for a 10 min break to have a quick drink and restroom. could have gone for another couple hundred at least but had to get home,for reference im 6-2 215lbs and will be 50yo in Feb..
I need to put up a video/sound clip one of these days as it does sound very nice

Great looking bike! I'll have to give the 1000RR a test ride this spring.

Very nice! I'm curious to know how bad prices are on the after market equipment. I've been talking my self into getting one of these for a while. But am affraid of BMW prices. The cost of the bike it self is very reasonable, it's everything else that concerns me. Full system, power commander, olins shocks, traction control. I love my zx-10 and It'll stay around but it's all track now and I want one more sport bike for the road before I go all old and cruiser on the street lol
