    Well, that's me, £1000 poorer from today :(..


    But, I am now 999cc richer :D. Just placed the deposit down on an '12 S1000RR for pickup on my return from Afghan. Now I can't wait to get out of this place!

    That's a damned fine way to spend the op bonus*, good choice. Looks very nice. Enjoy it when you're home!

    *and the rest!

    Non, as of yet. Will see how it rides and sounds. Probably first thing, although not for a while, will be a new can.

    Best way to spend an op bonus I think :p. Got no kids or wife to worry about, which is what most of the other lads I'm out with seem to be worrying about money wise haha.

    Are you on NorthWestBikers by any chance? lol.

    Do it while you still can! It's what I spent mine on.

    Look forward to seeing it at the OcUK bike meet if you're back in time?

    Unfortuantely, not for the one in March I won't be, not due to be back in the UK till the end of May, which does suck some what, but at least I'll have all of summer off to enjoy the thing!! :D.

    Getting it tax free too, so even more reason to blow my op bonus haha.

    Lovely looking bike.

    Aesthetically I do like sports bikes. Practicality wise I wouldn't have one as I'm not built for them and I'm sure my back would hate me.

    Nope, direct from BMW Park Lane, they specifically deal with exports and what not, so they know the full procedure. Also get a 10% Discount as well as VAT free.

    Not that I know of :p.

    I don't go on there a great deal anymore due to me living abroad. But still go out with them on Wednesdays if I'm home, and go to the BSB with the lot of them etc.
