Thought I'd share. I love it already but only done ~50 miles on it so far. 2020 is going to be fucking sweet.

Too many wheelies made the old one all mushy?

For someone who was getting a real hard on for doing big wheelies, I do think this is a strange choice, as a pre electronics era 1000 would surely be better for that purpose?

Haha not the reason I traded in. Just fancied the new one with all the bells and whistles. The old one was still handling fine even though it was abused a little during the learning process.

I got pretty OK with wheelies in the end, I can do clutch ups alright and don't bang them down anymore. My fascination has died down now anyway so if I do decide to do wheelies on this one, they'll be more controlled and not as often.

The cool thing with this one is the anti-wheelie has been separated from the traction control, so I can have full traction control but still pop wheelies to my heart's content. (Have yet to test this myself though, but that's what BMW are saying).
