Hi

Just clocked up my first 500 Kms on the XR and all great so far.  I bought it for a sporty bike that could do touring with a pillion as I do most of my weekend riding two-up. Good bike for the twisties and comfortable on the freeway/motorway/highway (cruise control certainly helps) so looking forward to the spring/summer and some longer rides. We have a trip in planning from Sydney to Tasmania in November so that will be a good test - should do around 3000 Kms on that trip.

I found lots of useful info on this Forum so glad to be a member.

Cheers

Welcome to the forum Jon!  It's turning out to be a forum with a lot of good info.
Did you get the bike in red??   :002:
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.
