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?
definitely something hot and spicy to go with the red colorReplyDelete
Bonny, for Anne Bonny, the famous female pirate! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_BonnyReplyDelete
I like that! I've heard of her before; I used to study pirates and their culture. There's lots of overlap with biker-culture.Delete
Red Ninja! :)ReplyDelete
I LOVE IT! Did I ever tell you I used to ride a Yamaha R6? Yes we definitely are kindred spirits. Beautiful motorcycle.ReplyDelete
Kia / KTS
No, you didn't -- how cool! What a wonderful thing we share.Delete
Sexy new bike! Heads will turn when you fly by.ReplyDelete
I'm crappy with names. My car is Rio, a Kia Rio. Clever, huh? But, in Doctor Who, he calls his Tardis Sexy and she accepts it as her name.
I like the name Red Ninja by Mia.ReplyDelete
Do you take a bike like this to the track so you can really let it loose? I don't image you can open it up on regular roads.
Of course. It's designed for that. Plus, I want to let 'er really rip and wouldn't go that fast on the street.Delete
Great ideas for names, I like Red Ninja...ReplyDelete
Red is definitely the fastest colour!ReplyDelete
So happy for you.

Wooo Weeee! "HOT STUFF" is my vote. What a beauty! Congrats and enjoy!ReplyDelete
Congrats! I too got a new set of Wheels when the jinxed Jeep finally went on the fritz... and my new Truck is Red too, it is indeed the faster color! *winks* Dawn... The BohemianReplyDelete
Good for you, Dawn. Hope you enjoy your new toy.Delete
First impulse was, to suggest a German name, this being a Beemer, however, nothing fitting comes to mind. I am thinking hot blooded, full of temperament, it has to be an Italian or Spanish name... Sophia? Carmen?ReplyDelete
I like those ideas. Thanks.Delete
Happy for you! Yes, red is def the speediest color (I had a red Eclipse once, very sassy). Have a blast, and be careful (sorry for the mom-talk!) xoxReplyDelete
That is pretty sweet!!! You are going to have so much fun on that thing!!!ReplyDelete
Wow, it's amazing ! Have fun on your beautiful redhead bombshell friend :) I'd call her Gilda or Rita, both for Rita Heyworth :-)) KissesReplyDelete

Gorgeous bike, looks like she's winking
Red IS the fastest color! I think this was an excellent purchase for you, and I was super happy for you when I saw it on FB.ReplyDelete
Zoom Zoom! Glad you indulged in this! She is a bombshell!ReplyDelete
I would never judge (and think it's cool there are bikes that serve different purposes). I hope you enjoy the heck out of wind-in-your-hair wild rides :) Red suits you.ReplyDelete
Congratulations, Ally! That's awesome! So many names spring to mind with a powerful red hued bike like, that from "Red Beard" (tying into your pirate theme) to "Ruby" and "Rose".ReplyDelete
What a great color! Now I have to convince my wife to buy one. I’ve wanted a motorcycle for a long time now so hopefully someday soon here I can get one. I’m sure you’ll have a blast with it as I know I would if I had one. But I can’t really think of any names for it.ReplyDelete
