Nice one Chris216!
Are you keeping the 1100S as well?
Would be interested in your opinions once you have some miles on it. I know it has to be much better in all aspects except looks!

Yes I'm going to keep the S, just have to make room in the garage. I'll report back when I get more miles on it. I'm hoping the weather will cooperate on Sunday and I can get a ride in. A lot of electronics to figure out as well. I'll see if I can figure out how to post some pictures.

No pictures?

I liked this one. Didn't buy it though since I had just bought a S1000xr last summer. This felt a wee bit lower to the ground though and I liked that.

Sorry for the delay in pictures, but I spent the week end playing with and actually riding the new toy :P This is the first time I've ever tried to attach pics, so bear with me.

One with the bags, and one with out. No regrets buying this one. I knew it would have more power than the S, I didn't realize just how much more, it's a torque monster and I'm still doing break in!

Looking good there Houston!
I wish I had that amount of spare space in my garage. Is garage envy even a thing?

I see they have added reflectors to the bottom of the pannier. Earlier models used stick-ons to the sides.

Great looking bike!

Thanks for the compliments guys. Alfa, that actually isn't my garage, just a place I stay when I'm in St Louis for work. I've attached a couple of pics of the home garage. I think I must be getting BMW sickness, 1 car and 2 bikes. LOL!

Congrats, Chris! Glad to hear you are keeping the 'S, too. Like I said earlier, it's fun to go back and forth.
