Hi from Johnson City, TN
« on: August 23, 2017, 02:54:36 AM »
Just purchased a 2016 XR to compliment a 2013 K1600 GTL. Pushing nearly 250 pounds less through the twisties is a blast!

Hello and welcome to the forum. Power and nimbleness make for a fun ride on this bike. I gave up heavier cruisers several years ago. Brought back the joy of riding again, especially with this bike.    :002:

Welcome to the club.! Traded my 13 GT in for my XR. Wish I could afford both and yeah these babies feel like a dirt bike compared to the K1600  :305:

Definitely like the K1600, I don't have one but it's on the "list"

 Crabs, They are really nice and the motor is sweet but my main complaint was just how heavy they are. I could not believe how much lighter my XR was when I first rode it. Close to 300 lb difference  :047:
