So after all my careful consideration of which new bike to get after my restrictions were up it all kind of went a bit sideways. The original plan: Buy a mid sized Sports or Streetfighter style bike. eg. Ducati 848 or 848 Streetfighter. Seems sensible enough to me. But all that was completely forgotten on Saturday morning. I decided to take a new 2012 BMW S1000RR for a test ride. OMFGWTFBBQ!!! I literally got off the bike thinking, "I gotta have it!". So, being the dutiful husband that I am I cleared it with the financial controller, and put my deposit down this morning! :biker: And now the wait begins. Although luckily the bike I've ordered was produced on the 6th of January, so it's most of the way here already. I'll post some real pics when it arrives, but for the time being, this is what it will look like.
