Thumbs up Popped my cherry!

So...my birthday gift from MaxGs was to hand over the keys to his newly acquired 199 HP 2016 BMW S1000RR for the day. This was my first time on a liter bike and OH MY , people! That bike is THE FREAKING BOMB! Soooo badass. And soooo sexy. I am in lustful love and need one (or some kind of super sport) for myself. (Anyone want to buy my Ninja 650?? LOL. If there was any doubt before, it's crystal clear now that that is NOT the bike for me. Only 2,520 miles on it!)

Even though BMW controls break-in by limiting the bike to 7k rpm and 125 mph it was still super quick and super fun. After riding around for a bit, Max told me to pin it in 6th...so I did. Let me tell you, that bike MOVES! Instantly! Especially with my skinny little on it. I mean it pulls HARD! I had to tuck and hold on tight! Got up to 125 in no time where it topped off (unfortunately). Such a freaking rush. I wonder just how fast I would go on a bike before backing off... Anyway, I put about 100 miles on her and got her ready for her first service so we took her in. All restrictions are off now, so watch out everyone!

When I got home and told my husband about the experience he said, "Yeah, you need to get your will straightened out."

Thanks again, Max, for trusting me with your hot new baby. Riding her was one of the most thrilling things I've ever done and I will never forget it. Happy Birthday to me!

"Hand over the keys".... uh huh. What really happened was a morning ride to breakfast and I let her ride the new bike. We ended up running several errands on the bikes resulting in visits to Motorcycles Unlimited, NW Ducati, and SW BMW.

Lots of seat time.

Nice...

Sounds like it's time for hubby to penny up for a new scoot..

I'd turn them all off, but I might hurt myself

OMG, really?? I can't even imagine. So insane. lol
Yeah, I mean, I already know a liter bike is waaaaay more than I need. I will most likely get a 600 something super sport.

You know, I don't subscribe to the whole "buy a starter bike" or "buy a small bike" etc etc...

If you are smart, have some self control, and use common sense, you can ride whatever you want...Just like you proved you could on MaxGS' bike.

Buy what you want, learn to ride it and enjoy.

Personally, I think more powerful bikes are safer for those who are not idiots. Hit the gas and go when you need to escape a situation... Just use self control until you get use to it.

Not everyone thinks with their small head, bro. It's not like she didn't mention it to her husband. My wife is cool with me interacting with other adults, it's called trust.

Well, look who stopped by. Hi guys!

Clothes are on. Hubby is not a bike guy and is not really social. I invite him to meets so he can get to know who I hang out with, but he never wants to go. Thankfully he gives me the freedom to be who I am and do what makes me happy. He trusts me to make wise decisions for myself and I try not to let him down. I'm sure he would be relieved if I gave up the whole scene, but it makes me feel alive and he enjoys having a happy wife.

Actually, that's what the majority of people are telling me. I definitely don't ride like an idiot and am pretty safety conscious. I could for sure handle a liter bike, I just don't want its potential to go to waste. Know what I mean? Why pay for something I would never use? IDK. I need to ride a few more bikes to see how they compare before making a final decision. Need to get on a 636 or similar. Not sure how torquey they are. My dream bike is still the 800cc MV Agusta Brutale Dragster, but I don't want to pay for the repairs and maintenance on one.

Anyway, I'll figure it out. Thanks for the input.

I agree the Dragster is an AWESOME looking bike but if I could suggest...
Look at the Aprilia Tuono. More power, V4, similar price, all the electronic goodies to keep you unscratched and a somewhat better dealer network.
I mean it aint like there's an Aprilia dealer on every street corner but there's major cities that don't have a MV dealer.

636 by comparison has no torque at all, lol

If I can make a completely un-biased opinion. You should get the 2018 GSXR 750 when it comes out
