Yesterday I was down at the BMW Motarad dealer in Manchester (Williams), for a routine service on my RnineT.

The standard of service was exemplary and just as I have experienced each time that I have been in there.  The service took the amount of time that I had expected, which was only about 90 minutes and it also gave me time to have a decent coffee and a wander around the showroom – there were some decent RnineT variants in as well, one of which was a particularity striking version of the Racer.

I thought it looked better than good, although to be honest I wasn’t overly struck on the black exhaust wrap, I think it works well enough with the overall colour scheme and finish, just not to my personal preference.

In addition to the standard RnineT versions there were some other decent models in the showroom as well:

As I had time on my hands I got one of the sales reps to pull an F800R out for me so that I could have a good look at it – and I must say there were some pretty good value used models at decent prices with absolutely minimal mileage on them.

An F800 could well be the sort of bike that would tempt me as bike for my wife and I if and when we get to the stage where we want to trade the Kawasaki that we currently have for us both.

So another decent visit to Williams and the RnineT is set ready for the summer and my Spain/Portugal trip in a couple of months. I’ve posted some other pix from yesterday in the gallery below. If you didn’t see yesterdays post with riding tips from yesteryear (the 1950’s) you can check  it out here
