Welcome not far from you Forest of Dean.
Great choice had mine 2 years just, best bike I've ever owned.  30'000 trouble free miles ridden all year round many European trips done average trip 3500 miles.
Great tourer and fabulous scratcher in the mountains and pretty good two up as well.
Reckon too keep at least another 2 years.

10 years with a K maybe we have used the same shrink  :018: I still have mine !! by comparison you'll find the XR a doddle and if you ever go back to ride a K you'll be surprised at the difference Flybywire changes your riding style and how little throttle you need.

Sorry FB got it wrong it's 2019 so you only be 67 with me not too far behind but Jeeze the RR is mini moto size.
