Still beats being in Toronto. Nothing but Cops and traffic.

Hey.... the squeaky wheel really does get greased.

I am looking forward to seeing how this performs/handles compared to a CBR1000 with some mods. I thought Honda did a great job in the handling dept with that bike, although they dropped the cassette trans and were very un Honda like in other areas.

It's going to be a missile as well down those straight roads. This will be the first bike I've bought that doesn't need a heap of mods put on it to get it were it needs to be.

I can't wait.

The CBR1000 is a training bike compared to the S1K. I've owned both (still have a 2012 S1K), and there is truly no comparison. Handling on the BMW is much better.
