    Let us know how you make out with the M1000r. As an equally old, but not quite yet thinking of changing, guy I'd be interested in the differences, apart from the obvious. I'm only 5'9 so maybe more compact than you as I don't normally get uncomfortable until the 90 minute mark and even then a stop for coffee makes it all good again.

    Yup - thats all recent BM's. I got an S1000RR and that is the same. Build quality isnt the same as the Honda.

    My mate Paul has just sold his Aprilia Tuono and bought a 1975 Triumph trident :( bit of a downgrade if you ask me, I am still in love with sport bikes myself, but each to their own ;)

    Enjoy your new BMW, bit better than an old triumph for sure :D
