Ordered my Daytona R Saturday. I cant believe they can sell it for only 1500 more than the base. 5 grand in ohlins, monoblocks, the shifter, carbon goodies. All added onto the already great daytona, seemed like a killer combo to me.

About me, I like anything involving wheels. I have a BMW F800S that is the main bike. Has full exhaust, luggage, heated grips, ABS, tons of little things really. A decently comfy riding position, ~90hp and ~ 65ft.lbs, and 50-60 mpg in a 400lb package make one hell of a commuter. My 01 A6, (SN) also has plenty of modifications. Im certain the R will take the same path.

Mine should come in mid March, and I cant wait!! :hooray:

Untill I can share pics of it, heres my Beemer.

Sweet. Congrats. I'm going to be going the MC show in NYC this month. I'm hoping they'll have it there so I can take a look at it!

Nice. I wish there was a show in or close to St. Louis. My show is the local Triumph/Ducati or bmw dealers. :icon_neutral:

Even the St. Louis auto show has pretty much died.

Daytona R, mmmmmmmmmm.

You're beamer is going to look hideous once you park it up next to the Daytona.

I might have to go sit on a Daytona R and convince my wrists that they don't hurt and my wallet that it has too much money sitting in it :laugh:

It is nice to be in an area that gets good auto/motorcycle shows. Honestly though, the ones here in Boston are pretty crap.

NYC is it.

Thanks for the welcomes.

I cant wait!!! I test rode the base before I agree'd to anything, and it was a blast, even at 19 degrees haha.

Talus, if you see one, pleeease take some pics for me, lol.

Yeah same here only Kansas City's auto show is still pretty damn good specially since you can usually get a coupon and get in pretty cheap.

Also welcome

Kinda interested in what the IP will look like. Wondering if it will be the same as the '10 SE, or if its going to be different.

And awesome guys, I appreciate it!
