Blingking, you probably meant you're use to keyboard jocks who call names and run.......look at all my posts, despite your opinion of me, I am no name-caller. That seem a cowardly thing to do.

And a buddy just reminded me to keep in mind that it would be unfair to expect of BMW to compete with the SAME horsepower as the competition.
If BMW had a rugby team, it would have at least 20 players in the team at one time.

Where BMW do compete on equal ground[WSB], well we know of their woes.....

I have seen a lot of engines seeping oil into the airbox and smoking like hell afterwards, of course that's the explanation. Here I am thinking a 4stroke smoking like a overrich stroker has a stuffed motor. Probably exactly what happened to TBK's cousin"s R1.........

Probably, exactly? Here you go again assuming things.However, I shall refrain from calling you numbnuts!
The bike in question had serious mechanical damage, so much so, that the head was replaced, reluctantly under warrantee. He is in process discussing this matter with the ombudsman, as the repairs done to the engine appears to be less than min. standard.
He has been for a test ride on the bmw, and cannot stop talking about the bmer. Apart from the amazing performance, handling and so on he likes the idea of having a really good dealer network, properly trained staff, decent workshops able to service more than say 2 bike at a time.

You do have a point in regard to BM's good service network, TBK. However, like anything else, a product or service only exist where it is needed.
If your vehicles really had no reliability issues, would BMW assist be neccesary? How did us Jap riders get along all these years? Are we really that much better looking after ourselves?
Imagine having Yamaha assist!! that bakkie and trailer will stand in the yard and rust to bits through sheer unuse.

So just for the record is it ok to refer to 2SD as NUMBNUTS? :biggrin:

No, it is against forum rules to call people insulting names...take note, BlingKing....

Wazzup Adventurer - did you not read this part?

"Just as a pont of reference "GOOGLE IT NUMBNUTS" is a generic term used on just about every forum I know of and there are a couple of my buddies who have it as an avatar even......."

Or must I go sit in the corner and write lines ?????   :deal:

Questioning a mod is also against the rules. The reference matters not, it is deemed an insult and not allowed.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Now I like 2st dan as he has knowledge of the classics and I would like to extract some more info from him.

 I do however like the s1000rr very much brilliant report saw the one at biketique in race trim and Donfords first demo that has been sold in white with red and blue graphix. This is a small bike with plenty omf. I was however not awarded a test as I deliverd my crashed Hp on the same day.

Taste vary and thank someone for that. The BMW S1000RR is a classic in the way the 1985 Suzuki GSX-R 750 was. The Suzuki was a huge leap forward in technology and performance and so is the Beemer. No surprise, since BMW motorsport has a wealth of knowledge in the field of F1 engines, and this experience has obviously been called upon by the motorcycle division. That they got the chassis so right is just another feather in their caps. It is simultaneously a brutally fast and attractive motorcycle.

I think this is the most valid thing you have said on the RR to date
