The BMW F900R is a winter warrior | GRR Garage

As winter encroaches, a Sunday ride on our long-term BMW F900R becomes a polar expedition, the rushing air reminiscent of an Arctic wind and the frozen temperatures eating away at my extremities. The F900R has heated grips, for which I am endlessly thankful, but the lack of faring means that the wind works its way to every inch of my body, thoroughly chilling me to the bone.

With the latest lockdown, the F900R found itself once again confined to the garage, without even the pretense of work trips to stretch its legs. Luckily, I was in the process of doing up my house, and while the BMW fell short when it came to luggage capacity, it was brilliant for nipping to and fro on errands.
