New BMW R1100SA Light owner
I bought a 2001 BMW R1100SA Light a couple of months ago. Since I live in West Texas (Seminole), I have been able to do some riding this Winter. I have been riding a 1991 Harley FXRS for years. I still can't believed I traded it in for a BMW, but I immediately fell in love with this bike after only a 15 minute test ride. I am very ignorant to the BMW line of bikes. I have always been a Harley guy. This BMW bike is the piece of machinery I have ever ridden. The previous owner kept immaculate records of all maintenance. He placed Stainetune exhaust and carbon fiber intake with chip to match. I can very little info on this bike on the web or other forums. So I joined this forum to get some information.
I figure I should say something about myself here. I'm from Virginia originally, but been almost everywhere since I was in the Army. Retired in 2007 and stayed in West Texas due to work. Everything is nice, but the environment, I miss lakes, trees, grass and curvy roads. I did not like the way my BMW looks, but the ride and performance blew me away. I just had to have this bike.
Here are some questions:
What does the SA Light mean?
Does the Stainetune exhaust and carbon fiber intake with chip improve performance?
I hope to get to know some of you out there, especially others with the same bike as me.
