That's still not 400. 430.00 + oil, oils seals and fitting still to go on top of that price.
Not cheap, by any stretch of the imagination.

guy, it's up to you to live with that fork or invest some money to have a much better one.
but, look on your list of modifications of your HS, the fork would have been a much more reasonable one than other listed ones, imho.

Styling .

There is no comparison. Strada/Motard set up just looks the nuts !

Multistrada just looks bulky and heavy at the front, and those nostrils ! uuurghhhh

That's just my opinion.

That Andreani part number says it is for the LOW model.

His point stands though, same price.

Being as you must like to get a bit 'hooligan' from time to time, knowing you went for the SP, I'm curious as to which BMW you think might satisfy you down the line...

Have my eyes on the S1000XR. I rode one. It didn't have quite the same hooligan factor as the hyper but it was very nice.

I test rode one recently. I told the sales dude that I rated the 1000XR 7 out of 10 for enjoyment compared to my Hyper at 9 out of 10. He didn't seem to like that.

I like your style. I would have definitely had a go on one if it was out the last time I went to the BMW dealer. After going there to ride the GS1200, and telling the salesman it wasn't doing much for me, he got me out on the S1000RR and K1300S. Loved 'em both.

The thought of that I4 lump and all the tech they put on their bikes these days in a touring chassis has me very interested. I shall ride one when the weather picks up again!!

For me, the S1000XR was a disappointment. Had one for a week on review and rode it all over the North Island. I couldn't believe how much it vibrated compared to any testastretta engine from Ducati. Short gearing made it seem hyperactive and raw at times when all I wanted was something more refined and effective yet just as fast. The Multi 12 is a way better bike if seeking a do anything motorcycle with a bit more power than a 939. You get a better gearbox, better suspension, better fairing, better seat, and I could go on.
