Hello,

I'm from Texas and have had two (2) BMWs. A 2013 R1200GSA, then a 2014 K1300S and now looking to purchase a 2015 S1000R. The R1200GSA was my first BMW, coming off a 2010 HD Screamin Eagle Street Glide all I can say is WOW, the BMRs are light years ahead! Purchasing the GSA in Chicago and doing an Iron Butt (17 hours door-to-door; 980 miles) convinced me of just how awesome these bikes are. Moving onto the K1300S really opened the door for me in a sport touring bike but wanted something a little more nimble in the twisties so looking forward to the S1000R. Thanks to everyone for your posts and insights on the various upgrades, do's and don'ts and how to's. Looking forward to contributing my knowledge as I become more versed in the new bike.

Welcome to the site. Post a few pics of your bike when you get it - or if you still have the other two post some pics of those as well.

Welcome to the site you're a little late for this years Texas Hill Country Roundup, but check the rally forum for the AHR (Arkansas get together) to meet some like minded hooligans.

I like the looks of the S1000R with a MRA shield.
I saw this bike at one of our rallies last week in Texas.
