Hi all,

Thank you for reading! I'm looking for some advice. I am considering buying a BMW S1000R and would be using it as a commuter bike to office which means I would mostly ride in business casual clothing. For quick errands, I would just wear shorts. I heard that engine heat is an issue with this bike. Do you have any personal experiences with that? Is it to the point where wearing dress pants is not feasible and legs in shorts get burnt?

I also realize the engine is overkill for city commuting but the power delivery should be smooth enough to still ride civilized, correct?

Any advice you have about this and other things related to the S1000R as a commuter bike would be much appreciated!

Thanks!
