Hello from Canada.

Being my first post I want to say I'm looking forward to what the BMW is going to bring. I can't wait till spring.

I currently have two literbikes right now, I've got a 04R1 and a 08 CBR1000RR both with Ohlins and all the goodies.

I've always wanted a S1000RR and 13 was going to be the year I did it. Last week I found out about the HP4, a few days ago I put my order in and my deposit on a HP4 Competition. I have the VCR rearsets on my CBR and I absolutly love them, the carbon looks perfect on the HP4 and I want something I can ride stock and have full warranty.

Ich Will

Saskatchewan. Unfortunately the roads are straight with the exception of a few valley roads. Thankfully theres the mountains within a day.

Welcome. I had an 08 CBR1000RR before I purchased my current bike a 2011 S1000RR. I still have not ridden the BMW yet, but I plan to take her for a spin this weekend. I'd like to hear what you think of the BMW compared to the Honda. My Honda was essentially all stock with exception of a pipe, PC3, and steel brake lines. For whatever reason my rear brake never seemed to work very well so I relied entirely on the front brakes for stopping and they were awesome. I just hope the BMW works as well in the handling department as the Honda.
