Default Skivviss' S1000RR Build 2

New bike, new build. The old bike fell victim to a driver making a blind left turn through stopped traffic (and to me being careless and not identifying the gap in stopped traffic soon enough).

Got the new bike a bit over a week ago, 2013 Granite Grey Metallic with 0 miles to replace the 2012 Motorsports with 10300 miles. In the end, insurance came through great and I only lost 750 USD, but considering the reset to 0 miles I basically came out slightly ahead I think in current value.

Rode like a mad man in our mild winter here in AZ and got the 600mile service done and behind me as of yesterday.

I was able to salvage the Zero Gravity windscreen, although every other plastic piece of fairing and attachment was trashed the 'flimsier than stock' Zero Gravity survived unscathed and unmarked.

I also added Stomp Grip last week as well.

So build as it starts out now is 2013 with 600 miles + Zero Gravity Double Bubble and Stomp Grip.









Next up as parts come in:

Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator
R&G No-cut frame sliders
R&G Rear spools
Tank bag bracket

The bracket is probably undamaged, but my inexperience with a totalled vehicle combined with the holidays ended up losing the old bracket to the insurance when they picked it up.

By the time I realized what was going to happen next, I was a few hundred miles from home and they were picking up the bike from the dealer before the end of the day.

I probably could have salvaged the bracket and rear spools had I known the insurance would pick up the bike and not let me at it again to tear parts off. I only got the windscreen because they removed it during the damage inspection.

What's terrible now though, I finally got the part number to replace the bracket and mounting hardware. But that doesn't come with the bike-side buckle strap. So now, I may end up having to buy a whole extra bag to get that buckle if I can't find a way to make one, per BMW they only give the buckle out with the bag itself.

Ugh. Well, overall I'm thankful that I didn't learn how totalling a vehicle with insurance works until I was 41, but annoyed too.

Heh S1000RR... definitely felt like a lot longer than 15 days that I was without bike.

But after reading some of that Winter bRRRR thread, I can't really complain. I may choose to not ride so much now that brutal winter has kicked in down in Tucson (~60F highs and ~30F lows), but at least I'm not contending with having to shovel a path from the bike's parking area to a road that is hopefully plowed.

Enjoy!! Been hoping for the snow to dip down to 3000ft here and blanket the 4x4 areas near town. Jeep fun!

Yeah, love the winters here. But I'm still a wuss and wait until it gets up to at least 45 before I'll ride, so I lose 4hrs of the short daylight this time of year. Whine whine!
