  1. Afternoon all,

    Just wanted to quickly introduce myself, name is Jim. Relative young blood, been road riding about 6 years now.
    Tomorrow I pick up my dream bike, a BMW S1000RR. Thought I'd take the opportunity to join the community at the same time.

  8. What's the diff between the 1000rr and the 1000rs? Cause this thing is a beast
  9. you got google?
  10. S1000 series includes three bikes now

    S1000RR is a balls to the wall sportbike, the most horsepower and least comfortable ergonomics

    S1000R is a naked version, still has sportbike rearsets, a tune for a bit more torque in the mid range and slightly more comfortable.

    S1000XR is the "sport-adventure touring" which has become popular with bikes like the Versys and V-Strom in recent years. Highest, widest bars, most comfortable seat, rearsets are closer to a touring bike than a sport bike, but retains the monstrous motor of the S1000R

  11. Welcome Jim,
    Congrats on getting your dream bike S1000rr is an awesome machine. Now you have to endure 1000kms only at 9000rpm and you will be in for real treat after.
