Guy from Arkansas here

Sup y'all, I'm looking to get a new bike in a few months. I was looking at the 2013 ZX-10R, 2013 CBR1000RR, and the 2013 S1000RR. I was wondering what you guys thought of the bike verses the ninja and blade. Is the Beemer easy to wheelie? Cuz I know the honda is a wheelie machine due to its torque.

If anyone has experience with all 3 bikes please chime in. Now I have been riding street for 7 years now. Dirt for 14 years. I have had an 06 R6, 07 GSX-R 1000, 08 ZX-10R, 11 GSX-R1000, 11 Honda Fury, 11 Harley Davidson. I am now bike less after taking a break. I'm looking to get a bike that will suit me for the next 4-5 years. Is maintenance an issue on the Beemer? Where can I get some bmw riding gear? I already have my exhaust picked out. Austin Racing GP2R Arcs De cat system or the shorty stainless pipe with GP can.

I really want an exhaust that eliminates the cat and includes the belly pan filler cuz not having one looks dumb to me. I'm picky.

A lil bit about me, I have been in the Army Infantry since 2005, deployed to Iraq in 2006. Got shot by an enemy sniper, got sent home. Left the army in 2008, joined the national guard and have been in ever since. Ok enough bout me lol
