New to me XR is home!
« on: February 25, 2017, 05:23:25 AM »
I picked it up today on a 450 mile round trip to trade my GS/A.

All the way there in some fairly cold and foul wet weather with crosswinds I was having pangs of regret for dumping such a capable all-rounder as the hexhead GS Adv. I was not really minding the weather and that sort of says something about the bike.

All the way back I was riding like a hooligan and laughing in my lid like a little kid. I might not ride it across Mongolia but... I wasn't going there anyway. Across North America and on my daily commute it's just a f**kload better at everything except that fringe case where I need to ride thru a river that I not only have no regrets, I'm kinda pissed at myself for not doing it sooner.

I'm ALL IN.
