The S1000R is a high-performance sportbike with immense power and superb handling. It generates the kind of thrills and chills that only a top-notch racing machine can provide.
"Hey, didn't you just buy a motorcycle?" Well... before you accuse me of being over-indulgent, let me explain. A decade ago I learned that a rider like me needs two motorcycles to be happy: (1) a comfortable touring bike for long-distance rides, and (2) a small, fast machine for wild bouts of hooliganism. The touring bike I got last December is perfect for carrying me to distant locations with ease. The S1000R is a different beast -- it's pure, uncompromising race-bike. Less comfortable and much faster. The S1000R is light, nimble and extremely potent. Reviewers describe it as "aggressive" and even "criminally insane." On days when I want to taste the intrinsic pleasures of motorcycle-riding, the S1000R will be my weapon.
Special thanks to my friend Chris whose shop (BMW of Manhattan) is the best place in the world to buy a motorcycle. I really appreciate Chris's friendship and generosity.
Now I just need to come up with a name for my new pirate ship. Any suggestions?
