    My New Baby! 2010 BMW S1000RR

    Hi all. Just wanted to share the delivery of my new baby. It is a 2010 BMW S1000RR! Talk about freaking fast and totally amazing. I bought the bike loaded with ABS, DTC and gear shift assistance. I have to say I was pretty nervous getting a bike that is almost 1:1 weight power ratio. However, BMW built this bike right. It handles extremely well, has smooth power delivery and is comfortable to ride. I did 50 miles on it when I got home and was totally comfortable on the bike after 30 minutes. I now can't wait to get out again!!!

    Here is a pic of the bike and a video of my friend riding it home from the dealer. Very nice!

    First, congratulations. Awesome bike!

    I'm going to probably come off sounding odd here but that is a lot of bike. I would be nervous but I also have very little riding experience. Congrats and thanks for the vid!

    Oh, let me know if you guys think a BMW motorcycle section is a good idea.

    To tell you honestly, I was $#@!ting bricks at the dealer. I thought for sure I was making a bad decision. However, after riding the bike for a while, I was completely at ease and extremely comfortable with the bike. It may be because I have been on 450 MXers for the last several years, but either way, this bike is extremely well planned by BMW. It could not have been built any better.

    That would be very cool. It is hard to find good information about after market parts for this bike since it is fairly new.

    hey guys im a complete newb to bikes.

    How does this bike compare to say, an R1000? Is it lighter? Heavier? More power? more torque/less power? Tell some things about this bike compared to others? I know an R1000 is a pretty mean bike, or a ZX14, what is unique about this BMW bike? What is the power output?


    Sorry, im a bike newb.

    I dont know much about bikes but that thing looks $#@!ing evil, the asymmetric front light setup is wonderful. Love it.

    Holy $#@! this thing comes 193 hp stock and 82 lb-ft, thats as much hp as a civic SI K20 2 liter car engine. I bet this thing is ridiculously fast.

    There are a ton of reviews on the web in video and articles. This is one that I found before I bought the bike. http://superstreetbike.automotive.co...rld/index.html. It gives the details of each bike and pros and cons.

    Honestly, I have wanted a sport bike for years, but it wasn't until BMW put out this bike that I decided to make the jump.

    My biggest concern was obviously safety. Having ridden this bike, I know it is the connection between your brain and right hand that make the bike safe. It is also being on the defense when riding and identify possible accidents at intersections. The bike comes with a flasher mode that alerts vehicles at intersections that the bike is present by blinking the two front head lights. The DTS also keeps the rear wheel grounded and you can avoid lifting the front wheel off of the ground based on your setting. Just like the M3, there are various modes that BMW has preprogrammed in the bike. There is "Rain" which cuts the power by 35% and allows no rear wheel slippage, "sport" which gives more throttle response but no rear wheel slippage, "race" which allows no rear wheel slippage but the ability to bring the front end up in a wheelie for a few seconds and then "slick" which means you are on your own! I am sure that Chris McNeil is in "Slick Mode" in the video above. Click here to enlarge

    I'm so jealous....... damn dude, congratulations! I can't even find one down here, probably will end up going with a GSXR or the cross-plane crank R1. The electronics on these things nowadays is insane, as well as the throttle response and power! (almost 200hp out of a 1.0 liter NA and passing emissions, insane!)

    Anyone looking to buy a Blue/Black 2005 Yamaha FZ1 (before the new gen, closer to R1 motor at the time) with 13,000 miles? Click here to enlarge

    Does anyone know a site that has modern liter bike tested (not estimated or claimed) performance stats, like dynos, 1/4 mile, etc.? I want to compare some 08-10 bikes to see what I like the most.

    Nice money for the performance but do you really need that? It is like strapping yourself to a rocket.

    Yes indeed!!! Funny thing was the insurance company asked if I had a nitrous setup on the bike! Now that would be very scary.

    200 miles later and I am still alive! I gotta tell you the learning curve for this bike was not too bad. I am feeling more confident every day and loving the bike. I am taking a motorcycle safety course (MSF) this Thursday and hope to be that much better on the bike. Gotta tell you that this is the perfect solution for when you get burned out on your M3. I know what you are saying... burned out? Yes, I have been using the car as a daily driver and now I have something even more spirited and manageable to use for pleasure trips. Plus, I don't need another sets of wheels and slicks for track days! It even costs less to track the bike!!! Here is a pic of the bike up one of our canyons yesterday.

    For those interested here is a summation of the different pre-programmed settings from another forum. The settings are spot on!

    BMW S1000RR with Race ABS and DTC

    1. Power Mode: Rain: Power is cut to 150 bhp, reduced torque, and the
    throttle response is more gentle.
    * The braking force is applied to both front and rear wheels (partially
    integral brakes)
    * Rear wheel ABS operates even when only the rear foot brake is used
    * The system detects if the rear wheel is lifting
    * Wheelie protection operates
    * Reduces rear wheel spin
    * Increased traction and stability even when the frictional coefficient
    spikes suddenly

    2. Power Mode: Sport (which is the default setting): Full power (193 at the \
    crank, approx 183 rwhp) with a fast but smooth throttle response.
    * The braking force is applied to both front and rear wheels (partially
    integral brakes)
    * Rear wheel ABS operates even when only the rear foot brake is used
    * The system detects if the rear wheel is lifting
    * Wheelie protection operates
    * DTC is slower to intervene than in Rain Mode, so slight drifts are
    possible when exiting corners

    3. Power Mode: Race: Full power but instant throttle response.
    * The braking force is applied to both front and rear wheels (partially
    integral brakes)
    * Rear wheel ABS operates even when only the rear foot brake is used
    * No rear wheel lift detection
    * Wheelie protection operates
    * DTC even slower to intervene so longer drifts and brief wheelies are
    possible when exiting corners

    4. Power Mode: Slick (coding plug required to be inserted): Full power with
    an aggressive and instant throttle response.
    * The braking force is applied to both front and rear wheels (partially
    integral brakes)
    * ABS does not operate when only foot brake is used
    * No rear wheel lift detection
    * Wheelies allowed up to a lean angle of 23 degrees and for up to 5
    seconds

    This is also coming! Can't wait for these. I am going to move my peg position forward for added comfort. These are LSL rearsets for the BMW S1000RR. This gives options for foot ppeg positioning.

    Next will be air filter and sliders. Haven't thought of where to go after that. I guess I need a web site where BMW bikes can be discussed for performance options. Click here to enlarge
