Ita LPMR moment ,it will pass . He is doing one of his hissy fit jesus things . All is fine if he is spreading the word and operating his revolving garage church . Making statments having people thank his statment ,thanking the people for thanking his stament ,all in a big group blowjob session . But now and then some come who dont agree ,they dont thank, they poopoo the revolving garage as false worship !!!. LPMR then has a hissy fit ,makes some swears , maybe puts up some pics of his guns , reminds everyone he is 6ft4 and 240lbs , perhaps issues a "get off my laaaawwn" threat , withdraws his image from the walls of the revolving garage should the unworthy gaze upon it .. then he stomps off and goes quiet for a few weeks .Comes back once he thinks everyone has forgotten that someone questioned the words of gospel and the charter of the revolving garage ... All normal and amuses me much .

The OP wants the bike for the street. Deltapapa, do you really care about the extra HP?
I understand Bender's post, in the sense that yes, as a sportbike -meant for the track, for racing-, the R1 has fallen behind a little in terms of what you get out of the box. But in this case, and in MANY people's case, it would be absolutely delusional to put that as reason not to get the R1 over the BMW if you prefer the sound, power delivery, looks, or whatever.
I ride my bike on the street. Have never gone much above a 100 mph; riding a bike to me is about the full sensual experience: looks, sound, feel. If the OP is anything like myself in this regard, then he should test ride both bikes and see for himself. Perhaps he will value the extra technology on the BMW, perhaps he will not. nico
