I think you are spot on. That certainly is what is attracting me to this bike.
I started on sport bikes with a 1984 Honda Interceptor, wend on to a Ninja 900 an so on. I moved on to cruisers when I hit my late 30s and spent ten wasted years on Harleys until I discovered the DL650 V-Strom which I love. Nimble, fun and sporty enough to have me yearning for my roots.... at 53 years old albeit still light and nimble myself, lol.
I've been eyeing a Beemer or two, specifically the 1200 R and soon to be 1000 XR, a beast of a bike. But now the 1000F is squarely in my sites and I just can't wait to see one in the flesh. At my age, although in great shape, I cannot spend hours hunched over on a GXSR or the like. This bike will be perfect for me. Ripping fast, fun, nimble.. can't wait to get one. I told my dealer I want the first one they get.
