Yep, quite a lot of new members lately.

Also, nearly twice as many posts in February as they were in December. Even more in fact than our S1000R forum which is normally quite busy anyway  :152:

Maybe the XR is no longer viewed as the poor relation to the "R" (by "R" riding elitists!   :001:  ), and it's finally seen to be a great bike in it's own right!  But we knew that anyway !

you said member...

anyway, I think the bad winters in the UK and the US have driven the increase in posts during the past couple of months.

btw, the R's suck. No R owner has the right to turn his nose up at the XR. Now someone who has both? THey can turn their nose up at me  :001:

Hopefully the numbers will grow and more after market bits will be available at a more realistic price

The price of aftermarket parts is always based on demand and market forces,years from now prices will drop as i’ve Seen with with my 1100s aftermarket parts have all but diappeared even the secondhand stuff.

As for the X/R bought no end of parts both off here and eBay at what I thought was ok money after some haggling I still have a short list of wants that i’m Sure will come along at some time.

Had a chuckle at the 1000r bit i’ve Only ever seen one on the road ever!!! As opposed to the hoards of X/R’s which are normally red  :001:

Well, now that we have 1100, I see my presence is no longer needed.

I will return to where I came from: BeerAndPieAndIceCreamForum.com.

Good luck with this scooter forum, thing.  I'm pulling for you all.  :019:
