    It does . I fitted Brembo pads to my Tracer and the thing stops like a sports bike .

    As a die hard boxer fan I really like that. The screen really changes the look of the bike for the better......somehow makes it look more cohesive and finished. The panniers integrate really well as well. I have a pal who is looking at a tracer but will suggest he looks here as well.

    Good write up.

    Interesting day yesterday and it seems to have proved you right Arsey

    Tried the Tracer first and didn't like it - suspension was harsh and despite the stiff setup it still felt a bit vague in the corners - not that taken with the engine either.
    Took it back and went out on the 10 instead - Wow, what a bike!!

    Puts me in mind of a modern Japanese interpretation of my Gen 1 Tuono (a bike I kept for years and reluctantly sold to a fellow Tosser a few months ago).
    It's pretty firmly set up but handles brilliantly and feels very easy to ride, and that engine is not too shabby at all
    Will need the screen, seat, grips as you said (and I might take it in for a suspension setup) but I liked it enough to put down a deposit on the spot

    My 6 month old R1200RS is now for sale
    Cheers

    I've provisionally ordered blue, but there are none available until next year, so I'll see if tehre are any new colours at the NEC before I finalise the order.
    I'm not convinced on the shifter at all; I'm told it's only up (so no down blipper) and the gearbox is soooo smooth I can't see the benefit going up only.
    If it was down as well as up I'd have one like a shot, but up only I reckon you might as well just use conventional clutchless shifts.
    Cheers

    You still have to close the throttle when doing clutchless. I would deffo spec the quickshifter!

    And then they announce an SP version.

    Should be stunning as my main complaint with MT 10 is the suspension

    Blue wheels don't look right. They would look better in the gold colour my FZ1S had.

    Hmmm - I guess that depends on how firm the SCU sets the ride (and how much owner customization is available).
    Probably get shot for saying on here, but the ESA on the S1000XR was just too damned hard for my liking and BMW's "we know best, so you can't change it" approach made the bike a no go for me.
    I'll be asking questions at the NEC, but if SP delivers a compliant ride without compromising the handling too much I'll be having one like a shot!
    Cheers

    I did a similar thing in August sat in Albertville waiting to head south.
    I turned off at Isola and headed to Barolo.
    The disadvantage of doing most of the RdGA in one day is that all the passes merge into one in the memory!
    Still, a brilliant day's riding!

    The ESA on the XR is crude and utter crap, all the other manufactures have moved on big time .
