    Hi from Co Down

    Wanted an S1000RR for long enough so finally made the decision to buy one. Still deciding between a brand new one or a lightly used one, but it has to be the 2017 onwards motorsports colours for me.

    Nearly went for a GSXR1000R, but saw sense.

    Have a GSXR750 at the minute which Iím just rebuilding after throwing it up the track last year, and also have a KLR650 Tengai for a bit of light off road fun.

    See theres a few on here from over here so looking forward to catching up at Newcastle in the warmer months

    Welcome to the forum Gav and congratulations on making the correct decision on your next steed
    As Soof says, best of luck with your bike search/decision. Youíre certainly purchasing at a wise time as there are good deals to be had!

    What spec do you have in mind? I would highly recommend ticking all the electronic options and going for the HP forged aluminium wheels, as they represent tremendous value for money at the time of purchase.

    Enjoy the forum, thereís a wonderful community on here and loads of information.
    Hope youíre onboard a 17 Motorsport RR soon and that you have many happy miles ahead of you

    Hi Gav, welcome to the site Fella. Love your country, keep telling myself I'm not going back to the NW200 because the weather is shite, then I remember I'm Scottish and have been sunburnt their the last few years, lol.

    I'll be there again this year.

    Keep it rubber side down when you get your new yoke.

    Re: Hi from Co Down

    Thanks all all for the welcomes. Going to try to get one sorted soon as I work away month on month off, and I donít want to have to wait until March to go shopping again. Will try and get a deposit paid in the next couple of weeks before heading back.

    Just to add also, the GSXR is a weapon, and I prefer the dash if Iím honest, but for me the BMW has always been the dream bike, and feels more comfortable and a little better put together, in my opinion of course. Suzuki were offering some very good deals mind!

    Cheers! When I specced one up there I added the performance pack which I think covers most of the electronics? If thereís anything Iím missing please let me know though! The wheels do appeal to me, but at the minute couldnít justify the cost for something I probably wouldnít notice. Be nice to have though!

    Cheers Jimmy, actually Scottish myself originally though have lived here the last 12years and am here for good now that a woman has me trapped! NW200 is good, but I much prefer the Tandragee, Cookstown, Armoy and Ulster races. Get yourself over for a good spin out, Iíll be heading over your way to do the NC500 later this year
