Sweet looking ride! But don't bash those Boxers!!!! I loved my R1100S for years. 65,000 miles of good, throaty low end nasty torque. Those double pipes tucked up under the seat. Ahhhhh, memories. Shoulda kept that old girl when I got the 4 banger Sport. The KR Sport is an awesome ride in its own rite. Loads of wind-outable power in all gears, I need to remind myself to drop it into 6 when I'm on the highway. Sometimes I need to force myself to run up the revs on the Sport---the old Boxer loved 4k rpm but wasn't much of a player north of 6k. Poor thing would be begging for an upshift at that rate.
I'm glad I spent years on the boxer before heading out on the Sport--it's so stupid fast I'm glad I worked my way into it after many miles.
Best of luck with that and ride safe!!!!
