Taking the first steps towards buying a RS - selling the Triumph Explorer and R1200S to finance the purchase of a shiny new SE. I have been checking around this site and found it very informative. Plenty of tinkering happening. I had a second test ride yesterday, mostly along motorway conditions, and have to say it is a very easy bike to ride. Plenty of get up and go, particularly in Dynamic, and certainly has that flat twin character. This will be my third flat twin Beemer after a R1100S and my current R1200S. If all goes well, I hope to be placing my order in time for a February delivery and look forward to adding to the discussion from a first person perspective.
