Taste Tests

Taste Test: 2018 BMW S1000 RR [K46]

It was November 2017, on a sunny day in Long Beach, California. I’m about to ride one of the best Super-Sport bikes…ever!

This is the first-generation BMW S1000 RR, the much-loved crotch-rocket in the riding community!

With its critically-acclaimed dynamics, balance, power, and ferociousness; of course, I was intimidated!

After riding the S1000 XR ADV-Sport & S1000 R Hyper-Naked, I am really looking forward to facing the final boss!!! LoL

At the time of recording, I have only ridden the 2008 Honda CBR600RR & the 2017 Yamaha YZF-R1 (base). Being bike-less and lacking in experience, yes, I was a bit scared!!!

At this time in 2017, I was not that proficient at riding sportbikes as I am today. I regret that I was not able to edit nor upload this video any earlier, I was supposed to save this as one of my highlights in my riding experience.

But after watching the raw footage, it took me awhile on how will I approach this.
