    Hey all,

    I've not long (3 months) picked up a late 2013 BMW HP4 that I had shipped to Canberra over from Perth.

    She's my first litre bike (up from a CBR500R) and while it's well beyond my skill level and was originally only looking at either a base S1000RR or 899, the deal I scored on the HP4 was just too good to pass up. The jump wasn't anywhere near as bad as I first thought.

    It's a 2013 HP4 Standard edition.

    Mods so far:
    Genuine HP4 Comp Carbon belly pan
    HP Rearsets
    HP adj. Leavers
    Weighted bar ends (throttlemeister)
    Yoshimuria tail tidy
    Evotech Rad and oil guards
    Evotech spindles.
    TechSpech grips
    MRA DB tinted screen

    Future plans:
    I'm now deciding whether to get the genuine BMW Race 688 Link pipe (De-Cat) or to go with an aftermarket pipe. The HP4's come with a full Titanium system with cat so would be a shame to toss it. If I did, it would be for an Austin Racing GP3, however think it would attract too much unwanted attention..

    Other than that, an Alpha Racing Auto blipper (for downshifts)

    Thanks and be sure to give a nod if you see me on the streets!

    Nice work! S1000rr is one of the easiest litre bikes to ride that I've ridden so good choice (well the none hp4's are anyway so I'd assume it'd still be similar). Enjoy the new bike!

    Austin racing pipes are wicked so can't really go wrong there either!

    @gemballa1980, I love that bike. So if you ever need someone to help you keep it turning over whilst you are on holidays, I'm there for you because I'm just that sort of guy. It would probably be easier if you just had a spare set of keys cut for me, for your convenience of course. Sometimes my generosity surprises even me.

    Sweet, very nice. Straight onto one of the best machines around, hard to find something better.
