Not only do you need engine guards, but it would appear that toe guards would be in order too!

Instead of putting the bike under you in the corner, put yourself under the bike (slide over a bit on the seat and move your shoulder forward and down so it leads into the corner). Plus, put the balls of your feet on the pegs. Then you'll have greater tire angle to work with, and less scraping of parts.

Since this I've taken a sport bike class on base and have learned a lot!

Nice picture. I would love to see BMW do a variant like this along side a more traditional R model when the liquid cooled R bike comes out.

I have owned several R's, but my favorite was the 00' R1100R

that's a good looking R! What brand is your topbox and how is it mounted?

Looks like a Givi rack from what I can see of the support, probably Givi box too.

That's class, but the first things folk would be looking for, would be screens and luggage.
