Riding The BMW 1000RR

I have been riding for 11 years now, and I can’t believe that its been this long. The first time I really feared a machine was the Yamaha YZF-R1, it was a machine to be feared, the raw power and insane control were not forgiving any mistake on it would have a bad result but I took it slowly on that machine. Now I have to see that the BMW S1000RR gives me that same feeling, I have ridden a lot of machines over the last decade and crashed in a few but for some reason I get this feeling that under that cover is a machine that is you have to respect or else it won’t forgive you.

Some people call it an assassin, the Germans set out to be build machine to destroy anyone and everyone on the street and the track, and they did. Its a precision built machine with no-nonsense attitude yet it is surprisingly easy to handle with all that power and pure agility its an amazing feat that they packed so much all into these two wheels.

After riding the S1000RR for the last few days I can’t blame people for loving this machine, and I especially love that ugly front face, it looks like its eyeing you waiting to be ridden. The side air vents remind of shark gils, open to breath in and take off, it really does remind me of the Tiger Shark the way its aggressive and has that menacing look. My favorite color is always going to be the special white, blue and red BMW colors, its a classic.

1000RR on Ice

BMW Motorcycles have been trying for the longest time to reinvent their image from being an oldies bike to an off the wall machine for any place or time, and I think with their current line up I think they have it covered, its no secret that I am fan of the K1200R but they have other interesting machines and one of them is the 1000RR. But what the BMW Engineers have done is insane, making custom made tires with studs and testing out the machine. I’ve never seen an ice burn out but there is a first for everything, then he is flying down the ice lake. I was curious to see him take turns with the machine, and those stubs look like the Beemer is ready to go to battle.
