 :400: Brian & congrats on the new bike

Can I ask you why you changed ?
A mate of mine is looking to change his RT but feels the XR is too expensive for him currently & has been considering an MT09 Tracer so interested to hear your reasons

Looked at the XR a year and a half ago but couldn't justify the price as i didn't know how much it would get used.
So bought the Tracer a year and a half later i fancied a change something with a bit better suspension and cruise control.
Road tested the XR and Multistrada and then going onto buy the XR. The tracer is not a bad bike its got a cracking engine but let down by a few things.
Could not get the suspension setup how i wanted it. The throttle was like a switch which made it scary in corners and no option of cruise control.
