I think the first thing I’d like to do is paint protection film. Need to do some research on it. List your mods in order. paste links or pictures
You have to be willing to (a) incur a BIG fine, (b) lose your license, (c) wind up in jail...or all three.How can you ride like you stole it on public roads ? Especially in the US
I hope its Matte Black, you'll have at least..1 fan here.I thinking about getting mine painted black before anything else to be honest. But realistically, fender eliminator is more realistic as number 1.
Depends how you plan to ride it, however I recommend getting up super early to do before a lot of motorists head out for the day. Do a once over if planning on hitting curves or check for police if you feel like heading into triple digits on the highway.How can you ride like you stole it on public roads ? Especially in the US
haha yeah i know all too wellYou have to be willing to (a) incur a BIG fine, (b) lose your license, (c) wind up in jail...or all three.
That road 121 sounds like fun! What part of Texas is that in?Ride it like I stole it 625 miles ! If the thing is as good as my 2015 has lasted 25000 very hard miles, then the love continues with BMW Motorrad. My 2018 only as 4500 miles on it so far. It is awesome !
Just to outline my process and why if any of you are interested in the same method of break in.
Brand new ! Sniff it a little. Love the smell of new.
Get home and start the engine a little so some more new smell is there...
Ride it out to Hwy 121. This is the mountain simulation on Isle of the Man. I can do 129MPH on it for the whole 10 miles of sweeper curves. I will limit to 100 in first 50 miles.
Return home and I should have 50 miles on it. Change the oil. Its called break in oil for a reason. I keep a sample to send to Chicago BlackStone labs.
Go back to Hwy 121. Now I am ready for 129 in some short runs.
Change the oil one more time at 250 miles. Keep a sample again for BlackStone Labs.
Continue running in at various speeds and RPM's to the 625 miles.
Now BMW gets to service it and change the oil again, remove limiter.... Go have more fun on FM697. 14 miles 41 curves.
Look forward to posting on this in 3 weeks.
As to mods.. Radiator guards are 100% first. Then abuse the brakes so I can complain about them. Well, I have the GP4's to remove from my 18 and my MotoGP master cylinder. I just got to see how those Hayes really feel in my world of riding.
Then I hope my buddy gets the Red bike and he still wants to trade my Motorrad Colors for his Red plastic. If not.. oh well. There is a wrap for that.

Love to join you guys one of these days. Would have to drive from Denver though 😀 I ain't spending 12 hours on any super sports lolThat road 121 sounds like fun! What part of Texas is that in?
697 is the fun spot.
I am in North Dallas area. We meet every Saturday and Sunday that there is not RAIN Sleet or Snow. Man has the rain came in North TEXAS this year. 12 Saturdays with rain in 2019 already. 5 inches above normal for the year. Has not even hit 90 degrees yet.
Not worried about LE. I been going those roads 9 years. Its pretty rural, and LE has alot better things to do on hwy 75.
Thanks for that. I'm new to BMW and leads like that are great.How about people can start inserting links for stuff that works on the new bike. Here, I will start.
