Hi everyone, just signed up for the forum. Picked up my new XR Sport SE white/granite grey a couple of weeks ago after trading in my 2015 GSA. Bike is used for the daily commute and weekend fun. Only added Evotech bar weights and a Puig touring screen so far and removed the pannier frames to tidy the back end up a bit. I found the forum a great place to answer some of the questions I had before deciding to buy one, so thanks to you all for your helpful honest posts ! Cheers Andy

Hi Jockser, I really liked the GSA but with me commuting each day the bulk of it finally made me look at the XR ! So glad I did   :001:

Weight (of the bike, not me !) was my reason for changing. I thought I was going to get an 800GS but the dealer didn't have a demo one so I thought I'd try the XR, would have been rude not to !, and was sold straight away.
