Hi Y'all, New XR owner here, picked up the new bike yesterday (Thu) and looking forward to getting acquainted with it. Be very happy when run in and the full potential can be released, heading to Romania in July so it better behave.

I picked up the new XR on Thursday, need to put on some miles for the 1st service so headed to the west country yesterday. Wasn't sure I would like this bike for long distance, after coming from a K1600GT, anyway as running in I kept to the A and B roads, one serious side effect of owning this bike, even restricting myself to 7k rpm, is that I have become a motorcycle hooligan. it's not me, it's the bike, honestly officer the bike made me do it.  :001: :001: :001:
