Hi. Newbie from UK.

Pick up my White Sport first week of March from Oxford. Got Akrapovic, trick levers, tail tidy and diddy indicators.

Looking forward to it. Trading in my beloved Crescent tuned GSXR1000K3.

Hopefully I will not get too many cramps on the RR and regret swapping out the big Suzook.

Welcome aboard.. don't think you'll be cramped. Do you have a link for the Diddy Indicators and the Levers you're going with? Wasn't sure what they had out there already to go for the S1.

I thought you had some aftermarket (non-BMW) one's in mind...

No. I think the Tail tidy is an R&G / alpha racing item.

Levers and LED indicators are dealer fit genuine BMW items (I think?)

For sure on the turn signals and levers... Tidy Tail may be R&G?!

Hi mate
you lucky git, you're getting yours before me.
I'm not having the mini Led indicators. I have them on my HP2S and I have had to replace both front one due to smashed lenses caused by stone strikes.
At a cost of 27 each. They look great but are very fragile. As is the Radiator on the S thou
Did you test ride the S thou? I think it's more cumfy than the Gixer and even the Blade.
Cheers

Look the pair of you are getting them before me and I placed an order in April 08!
Likewise on the Beemer LEDs, had to replace offside fronts twice , never considered stones but you could be right.
May see you at the odd track day this year!

Hi Stu

funny you should say that. I'm just thinking of booking a Track Day at Mallory on 8th May or maybe Rockingham on 1st May

My local Track is Castle Coombe, but i've binned it twice there, so i try to avoid it.
