You may want to add that beep beep sound a truck has when reverse gear is engaged. 😜

Like the old BMW warning that you were using your indicators. As a Laaitie I knew my old man was on his way home as I could here him turn into our road two blocks away on his R 80 RS. Same for the R 1000 RS that came next.
"These are not machines for the meek. Ride it like you stole it, cane it within an inch of its life. It will require a bunch of maintenance and generally tend to be, shall we say, harsh? It was bred for racing, after all. It will devour rear tires and its lust for fuel will astound you. It will suffer indifference and carelessness very poorly.
