BMW S1000XR, HY65 CHH / C11 BLX

After two test rides at Bahnstormer in Alton when I laughed manically in my crash helmet when accelerating, , I secured a secondhand SE with 2000 miles on the clock. Made a load of bits for it which I sell on ebay plus fitted an Akropovic silencer and better screen.

When the MY16 came out I decided to get a brand new one and refitted all the bits from the previous one! Also had an Akropovic decatted manifold fitted and took a trip to Hilltop near Leicester for a remap – result was 171bhp at the back wheel.

Without doubt the best bike I’ve ever had and ballistically quick when required plus comfy with it.
