today I popped into a bike shop to check out the K1300S, what a beautiful machine, looks so much better in the 'flesh', internet pics don't do it justice. I thought this is what I wanted but then I saw the S1000R (in red) and WOW that is a hot looking machine. I think I'm in love and haven't even ridden it. I didn't have time or the gear to take a test ride. sitting on it I don't have any complaints, it's got everything I could want in a bike and the on-line reviews all seem great. have found many positive comments on here also. could anyone that has spent some considerable saddle time on the single R tell me your thoughts? what's it like after the honeymoon period is over. what's the comfort like on a long ride say more than 2-3 hours? how's the wind buffeting at 100km/h, does the mini deflector help? also, did you upgrade the exhaust to the Akrapovic slip-on or the titanium exhaust? I'm thinking I want one (will still keep the fattie). I won't commute on it so it will be a weekend rider so want to make sure it will be ok for day trips and riding two up on occasion. thanks NetRiders!
