Trying it out for size at Bahnstormer my local BMW dealer 20 km from my house, a bit lower then the CRF 250L which was appreciated
I traded in my Honda CB500F against a brand new red one which I will pick up the end of march when I return to the UK
It only had 10km on the clock so no racing it but it was great out along these country lanes and the larger 19" front wheel was a lot better on these bumpy roads then the smaller front wheel on the 310R
6000 rpm which I was told to not exceed equated to 100 kph in 6th gear
Amusingly when I got back to the shop a few of the staff were asking me how the bike was as nobody there has rode one yet as it was the first one they had and it only arrived a couple of days ago plus its not officially launched until next saturday 21st.
According to them I was probably the first customer to ride one in the UK, a fun machine and one I am looking forward to getting next year.
