I think the secret is to be rich as and own at least 5 different type bikes. even then I probably wouldn't be satisfied. I still haven't tried my hand at a Streetfighter yet.
A salesperson at Mancuso once tried to sell me a Streetfightuh, I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti. Sssststststs...

I love my 600, but I wish I also had a liter bike to choose from depending on the ride and who I'm riding with.

I should put that power commander on and see if it makes a difference....

I think you need to hand others copies of your keys. Problem solved. Where's that video?

For me, there is no better bike than my ZX-12R, and I have had plenty of newer bikes.

Love my F4i and RR... but nothing I've ridden has ever has had the same emotional significance that the F4i has.

I considered changing ohlins to correct the problem but then the 1199 was announced and i was the first one in Houston to put down a deposit on it, now after 6k miles on the bmw i can say that i have learned to ride the bike with stock suspension and little by little get used to the less communicative front end. I would love a better feel of the front end but it is not something i really need in order to enjoy the bike, i feel comfortable riding it now and havent really seen anything i really like in the market to consider switching brands as of today.
what year is your S1000rr? I read the 12-13's have revised steering angle and rake for easier turn-in

They older I get the less I worry about whether it is a modern bike with all the latest technology. That being said I am very happy with my 2009 FZ1 and no other bike has caught my eye. ....at least for the same intended purpose.
