Hello from Essex
« on: April 02, 2017, 08:39:18 AM »
Hello everyone,
Picking up my s1000xr this coming Thursday, ex demo sport se version. Traded in a DVT multistrada, I only had it a year and had been at the dealers 6 times with warranty claims, enough was enough! So I am looking forward to having the XR, really enjoyed the test ride, it just handled so well and I loved the gear assist pro!
Steve.

Hi mate and welcome, have got stung by Ducatis myself in the past but still love the look of them. But older and maybe a little wiser now. Maybe see you at High Beech sometime? I like a weekend rideout to the tea hut now and again when i get a weekend off... Cheers, Tim

I came from a Multistrada too, pre DVT though and didn't have many problems with it in nearly 5 years.  In fact my XR has already spent longer back at the dealers than my Multistrada did but hopefully will get sorted soon!
I thought it might take me a while to adapt to the inline 4 after years on V-twins but the XR motor is amazingly tractable as well as having the high rev power hit.  It's a hoot to ride  :745: and for me is the best of the "upright/comfortable sports bikes" at the moment.
Enjoy it.
