Mileage 3,500, 04/2020

The trip with friends covered a total of around 500 kilometers. Friend and tour guide Steini has put together a wonderful and very varied round tour.

Fleet manager Tobias Wassermann was enthusiastic about the engine of the new S 1000 RR.

The BMW also knew how to impress on the first drive: "The engine is a stunner even on country roads. In sixth gear at 50 km / h out of town, just wind it up and the engine still pushes forward vigorously. Only those "Downshift"-The function of the blipper could be more precise and exact – feels very doughy and stiff. I’m used to better things from other BMW motorcycles!"

Mileage 2,200, 03/2020

After the arrival of the BMW S 1000 RR, a fight unfolded every evening between PS colleague Tobi Münchinger and godfather Ralf Schneider about who could ride the double R home. There was nothing to complain about up to the 2,200 mark. After around 2,200 kilometers, the first inconsistencies appeared. Both Simmerrings on the mighty upside-down fork show light oil mist, which had to be checked in the workshop and then replaced with new components. Very unusual!
