Alright, not to be gay or anything (not that there is anything wrong with being gay) but is there a group of BMW S1000RR riders that meet?

Its my first pseudo race bike and I want to get some pointers, tips, etc on how to ride to it's full performance. I'm just now getting use to the shift assist and I'm in love! Now if I can try out the ABS (not that I want to), to see how it works, I would truly be in hog heaven.

I met bounce305 at the dealership, he says he rides with a couple of beemer riders, so I am hoping to hook up with them!

Text me, I am up for a ride 24/7

Just a headsup, most people call bike's like that, a supersport, not pseudo race bike.
Sweet bike!
I want, but no can has.

hey Colonel, Bounce rode with us last sunday, we have SMRs every week, you are more than welcome to join us and i will try to tell you what i know about the bike from personal experience which is more like only 2300 miles of riding it, just went to test the abs last saturday when the pavement was wet and i was amazed by the stability of the bike under hard braking on wet pavement!

Awesome, looking forward to it. I have to go out of town this weekend, but maybe if you guys ride Wed-Sun next week you can hit me up?

Sadly I bought my bike the same day I had to fly to Vegas so I got 2 hours out of it and now I have to head to KY ahhhh, work is interfering with my play time!

C'mon lottery!

Going to the meet to night at JCI, anyone going?

There is a guy named William Guthrie, he can teach you a thing or two about riding the beemer.

I just saw that he is from Austin. One of the fastest CMRA riders out there, he is doing 1:45's at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on a S1000RR.

How many miles you have on your bmw? I got mine a few weeks ago and have hardly put any miles on it. I always seem to be busy doing something else.

Speaking of last night, wow!! For my first time out with you guys I had a blast. Thanks to Floyd for riding up with me, thx to all the guys that toted me around to different spots, thx to mark for getting us lost, and thx to Tim for showing me some mad skills!

Looking forward to riding with you guys anytime. I hope I kept up ok on my new Vespa lmao (thats for the haters).
