SPEED KILLS

A 19 year-old riding an apparently stolen BMW motorbike was killed over the weekend. The bike appears to be either an S1000R or an S1000RR, it’s even more powerful sibling. With 150+ and 190+ horsepower, respectively, either bike is an invitation to disaster for an impetuous, inexperienced rider. It’s no wonder the young fellow came to grief.

This video illustrates the S1000RR’s performance potential:

 

I’ve been riding an S1000R for a couple of weeks and am stupefied by its quickness; today I went for a ride and got home to find I hadn’t left yet.
