Newbie from Down Under

Hi All,

I paid my deposit on Friday for a S1000RR.
Can't wait to get it, probably a month away.

I might pre buy a Akrapovic system for it. Has anyone heard the full Akrapovic system on a bike yet? How does it sound?

Cheers

John

Thanks guys,

I am not sure exactly when I am getting it. The dealer (whether he is telling me BS or not), said he doesn't know when I will get mine, just the they will be starting to deliver them in February. If its in June, that won't upset me too much....gives me more time to get funds together instead of borrowing some $$$.

I ordered the BMW colours, white blue and red.

I am in Ferntree Gully, Vic. (suburb of Melbourne).
