    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 :scared

    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. :smile:

    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.
