    Hello from Spain

    Hi there everybody!

    New to this forum and also a slightly new S1000RR driver. Bought a 2017 on July and i'm really stoked with the bike

    I come from a naked so this BMW is completely different. Anyway, I hope to learn a lot in this forum, share some pics and have a good time.

    Cheers!

    Ola Ernesto!

    Welcome to the forum! What part of Spain are you from? You certainly have some great weather for biking in Spain and some great tracks too!

    Haha hola flyingscotsman!

    I'm from the east of Spain. More specifically, Valencia! we have 300+ days a year of sun and as you said, some great tracks so it makes it easy to enjoy the bike. The bad side is the weather which is quite hot most of the year so when I ride it through the city, the bike gets very very hot :S

    Welcome along, such a fantastic country for riding, you are most fortunate...even if city riding is very hot.

    Enjoy the RR!

    Thank you Alex!

    Indeed it is a fantastic country for riding. Two friends and I are planning a summer trip for next year and we will travel to the UK in our bikes so it'll be interesting.

    I will be asking for some tips and places to visit next year

    Cheers!

    Hi Ernesto, you do indeed come from a great place. I got a speeding ticket from the Valencia Guardia Civil last year, what a happy bunch they are. lol

    The weather you have is perfect for riding and I hope you love your new bike.

    Stay safe and watch out for the Guardia.

    Thank you JimmyMac! I hope you enjoyed our spanish roads, too bad the Guardia Civil handed you that beautiful paper gift lol

    I have some friends in the Guardia Civil but whenever they've put me a speeding ticket they can't take away the ticket so i'm screwed up haha

    Enjoy your bike too!

    Thanks Oli!

    Well my bike history is not that long. Started riding just some 125cc scooters and later on I jumped a bit and started riding a Yamaha Tmax.

    Then I knew I fell in love with bikes so I had a 2011 yamaha FZ-8, then a 2016 MT/FZ-09 and then couple of months ago I bought this 2017 S1000RR

    It's my first racing bike and it's a completely new world for me. Different riding style, weights, etc. I'm learning every day since I bought it!!

    Cheers!
