I got my "new to me" '05 SS1000DS registered yesterday and spent most of the day riding around. My overall impression is that this bike is what I expected except better. Really enjoyed the ride and was impressed with the motor. Certainly different from my 998 Bayliss motor but an excellent street motor. Very pleased with everything about the bike. But, one question....does anyone else think the high beam is kind of mediocre? Honestly as I was riding last night and flipping it between high and low it was disappointing. My Bayliss high beam is better IMHO and that surprised me.
