While i'm still better on the street than him, his bike def gives him an edge with everything it come with.
My local dealership has one R1M left and i was really contemplating picking it up but that's just enough that i would have to make payments.
I'd really like to just drop cash. I have had an 03 R1 but it didnt have the crossplane crank. So the 14BE almost looks perfect for the price.
I have a '16 S1000RR. They are sweet bikes. Probably another reason I dont have a newer R1...
