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.
