Cool New Houston Rider

My name is kirk, Ive been riding for a few months on my friend's mini dirt bike which I wound up wrecking but loved riding so much, I felt it was time to hit the streets and wound up getting talked into a 2012 BMW S1000rr.

I've heard I should get some lighter rims for it so it can turn better from what my buddy has said but then I'll probably get the swing arm extended 6" inches and stretch it out. I'm sure there are loads of people that have done that so let me know what rims you wound up getting and what should I look into when stretching the bike.

I haven't picked up any gear yet and probably wont at this point, way too hot out, so just sticking to sun glasses and my muscle t shirt. If anyone's got a faster way to get to the pool let me know.

was up jerk welcome

edit looks like you are on the right track riding wise but your trolling skills are lacking
Sure, I've been called a xenophobe, but the truth is, I'm not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called patriotism.

yeah. I thought it'd be like riding with a condescending rossi.
