    Dropping an R

    Just pulled the trigger on a deal to trade my 2017 RR MSport for a 2019 S1R... since I got a 2nd bike for distance work and commuting (KTM 1090 Adventure) I've rarely been on the RR and not really got the time/money for trackdays in the foreseable future so seems a waste to have it sitting around doing now't.

    I had a test ride on the single R and laughed my betty's off the whole time, not had that much fun on the RR for a long time so seems like the right decision - anyone else gone from RR to R or other way round?

    I have wondered about this route for a road bike...interested to see how you get on.

    Didn't have to make the call, I just enjoy them both! As you say, the R is sooo much fun.

    I would stick to this forum though, the R forum is very quiet..

    Congratulations!

    I had a couple of days on an R couple of years ago and it was a hoot. Even got myself 3 points on my licence so it must have been really good.

    Enjoy.

    Hopefully the initial glee lasts and it proves to be a sound move - time will tell, although if the new RR had been available in black then it would have been a tougher choice...

    Nice! It may turn out that way in a few years once the next iteration of the new RR appears... best of both worlds

    Lol, yeah it encourages that sort of behaviour, I'm glad there were no cameras around on my test ride!

    I loved my R. Went from a 2017 R to a 2015 RR.
    I did 6500 miles on my R in 16 months.
    Handful of trackdays too. Unfortunately after breaking my hand it just became too uncomfortable to ride.

    Collecting her on Saturday, weather looks rubbish though - hopefully get out on Sunday and get that 1st service out the way asap.
