Other takes on the R11S

Here's a link to another site with a bunch of comments on the R11S. It's interesting to see what other people think of our bikes.

looks like the usual consensus that we have here.

one day at work, when i must have been rather relaxed, i had to spend a bit of time riding a k100 of some sort. by the end of it, i was quite enjoying it, and didn't really notice the vibration anymore or the too close gears or the lack of performance either.

which proves two things;

1/ you can get used to anything

2/ however, that don't necessarily make it right

gave myself a good slapping and came to my senses later. i really don't like those early k's. well, most of the k's. and i don't care if you like them. i don't have to.

that's the phrase i was looking for.

thanks.

although, with the k's it's not a comparison thing. i just don't like them. i think the main reason is the gear spacing, oddly enough. all starts from there. and the 4 cylinder vibration. can you imagine that, coming from a guzzi man!
