200 miles on the 1000RR

Got to ride the new 1000RR a couple of hundred miles yesterday and will get in a couple hundred more today. WOW!!! This is without a doubt the best handling MC I've ever thrown a leg over! It handles so well you don't really notice how FAST it is! Rode it "Tank to Tank" and was ready to pull over and get off after 3 straight hours but, it wasn't terrible. This MC is amazing and is LOADED with technology that I hope will be shared with other new BMW MC's

Re: 200 miles on the 1000RR

I'm totally jealous! I only got a 20 minute test ride on the S1000RR and I was blown away! I was shocked how comfortable a ride it was and was equally amazed at how forgiving such a powerful bike could be. Simply a joy a ride! I have owned and ridden many powerful bikes, but nothing like the S1000RR. I would love to spend a whole day with one!

Hey David , Glad to hear the dealer let you take the bike for an "Extended" test ride.
