Another New Rider Seattle
Hello All - Moved up from LA ditched my old 2007 Gixxer 600 for a screaming S1000rr. Upgrade on my ride downgrade on wallet :angry7

I have been riding bikes for a few years now but not really an expert. I would certainly like to do some track days to improve my riding skill, too bad the the riding season is getting over here :(

I was on the beamer website, a friend told me about this, so here I am. Hope to ride with you guys before it starts snowing

Cheers,
Sam

Welcome Sam.
Set of rain tires and you're good to go.

Who are you on "the beemer site"?

I'm Rainman on a few.

No kidding, the Rain mode does work pretty good, tried it out during the last track day I went to on Sept 9th at The Ridge (just my luck, the only rainy day around here over the past 50+ rain free days).

Heard they were working on a Snow mode for the next generation bike, apparently it involves a set of training wheels, j/k.

What's wrong with your bike in the video? I hear the motor revving, but it doesn't seem to go anywhere?

Welcome! Nice bike! Good to see the California exodus continues. I'm originally from NorCal ( Bay area ). Ride safe, don't feed the trolls and hope to see you at a bike night sometime.
