    1994, 2700 miles, stored indoors for 20 years. Bog standard. Couldn't resist the Testarossa-style side strakes!

    I like it decent bikes and 3k for a bike that's just about run in. Add new tyres fluids good to go. Does it have the ABS still?

    First thought was wow time warp machine.

    Second thought was, is that really from the same century let alone 2 years different to my old 1996 Blade I had.

    I'm loving this bike so much. Thinking about getting a 2nd bike, so I'll test ride various kinds of BM1250, the S1XR, maybe the new S1RR, a K16, the Diavel and Multistrada...but will any of them be significantly more fun than the bike I already have? A large chunk of the fun of biking can be had on any decent bike. If you trade up from 'decent' to 'wonderbike costing 5 or 6 times as much'....is there any point?

    Try them then you get to answer your own question and lots of fun on the latest "wonderbike"

    I have a Multistrada and a 19 year old Fazer 600..... the Fazer is fun to ride and serves a purpose ..... the Multistrada makes me smile and laugh every time i ride it and is on a different planet to the Fazer

    Nice flying brick though it looks in collectors condition ...... and well done on binning the ABS as its terrible

    If you have the space & cash, perhaps keep the K running but in good condition and get another everyday bike. Maybe another Bimmer?

    Most fun I've had on a bike was on totally inappropriate bikes - overtaking a Porsche on the training scheme's CG125 and dirt tracking on an MZ TS125, for example.

    On paper the S1XR looks like non-stop entertainment, but also very practical and versatile. Used prices seem low and they'll probably drop when the new model is announced and winter arrives. I can't wait for a test ride.
