2012 S1000rr

Nate Kerns on his facebook page has nothing but glowing things to say about the new 2012 bike...

While I was in Valencia last month testingthe 2012 S 1000 RR! I cant beleive the refinement, 10's and 11's obviously go great, but the 12 is just that mucch and more! First noticed the throttle response and the happy medium found by BMW for all level riders (Sport, Race, Slick all one response now), then chassis (so neutral), then stock suspension actually allows for some serious lap times on street K3's! Still smiling a month later. Cant wait!



Of course, us mere mortals will have to make due with 2010, 2011's or in my case, a 2004! zx-10r.
