Racing a S1000RR

Hi, Just bought a 2017 S1000RR for racing after racing a GSXR1000 for a number of years, looking forward to trying out all the electronics that the GSXR didn't have.

Congrats! I also came from the GSXR's, and while they still hold a place in my heart, but the S1K took the primary spot . I'm sure it will for you too...

Do you plan to race with DDC? What suspension setup you have in mind?

No DDC. I think I'll take it for a ride at the track first and see how it feels before changing the suspension.
