Been n' gone & done it - AGAIN.
« on: April 19, 2018, 05:58:34 PM »
I had my XR in for a 12,000 service at Reiten's 10 days ago and gently enquired what mine was worth against a new M'sport spec and after a bit of haggling "which is all part of the fun," bugger me, we finally shook hands today on a crackin deal.

P/X on mine (£9,500) AND £1K off the new one. Pick it up next month.

Plus the M'sport comes with the HP comfort seat so I'll be selling my current one soon.

Happy days  :305:  :046:  :152:

P.S. I test rode their new demo and I couldn't really notice any difference in performance etc, but of course a brand new bike will always feel smoother than a 2yr old one.
Cheers,
Charlie Spiceboy.

I replaced the original with an HP comfort standard height. Big improvement and couldn't go back, not just for the looks but mainly for how much more comfortable it is.

Dropped my K13S off and picked up my blue XR from Reiten's last week - pleased with mine as well, but do love the Motorsport edition  :152:
