Allan takes on France15.07.2017
Thank you to Alan from Scotland who bought a S1000XR off us around Christmas time, and is clearly enjoying it!
Bike covered 3,200 miles (all in France) on hols – and was absolutely brilliant!
As comfortable for long days – as the GSA, but a lot better due to cruise control and air around the screen. Only negative is it is not quite as tractable in towns, stop/start. 200+ miles out of each tankful, and all the performance you could ask for.
Quickshifter great on the downshifts, especially when you are trying to fit in a series of shifts in a short period of time……..
I fitted Metzeler Roadtecs to it before going, and with 3,200 miles on them – they look like they might last 4,500m which is really good. Will refit the Bridgestones at some stage…………..
So – it looks like being a keeper!"
