Hello from Thailand.
I've recently ordered a couple BMW S1000RR (one new 2012 and the other BMW motorrad France ex 2012 FSBK race bike), I've never ridden a BMW before so I've been lurking around the forum to get as much info as I can.
2012 street bike should get out of customs next week and the race bike will arrive mid Dec, can't wait. I currently work and race in Thailand so life is good! Been racing a 08 CBR1000rr for the past year in the Thailand superbike series but have been recently sidelined by a big crash during practice. Ended up with a broken scapula and I'm one week post op from a full knee reconstruction (PCL, meniscus, popliteus tendon). On crutches for another few weeks but should be able to try out the new bikes early 2013.
Will post some pics when the bikes arrive!
