Was just doing some (more!!) research on the F900R as I've not got mine yet and came across this forum so I joined straight away and now look forward to getting lots of info from my other F900(X)R owners.
A bit about me - I'm the wrong the side of 50 (though not by much) and am from New Zealand but have lived in Sydney, Australia since 2001. I came back to biking about 10 years ago after a 20+ year gap (though I've always had scooters for zipping around the city and commuting). Recent bikes have been: 2013 F700GS, 2014 R nine T, 2016 Yamaha MT07 HO, 2017 Honda VFR 800F.
I'm now looking to buy a new bike and having looked at lots of different options I just can't go past the F900R - always been a BMW fan anyway and all the amazing reviews and what you get in the package plus the performance and torque, that amazing TFT (etc etc) has meant it's a no brainer. I've not even ridden one yet but will do in the next week or so (when the stupid spring rain here in Sydney finally buggers off!) and will probably buy one straight away assuming it's as good as everyone says it is!
