I did it! Traded the XR
« on: May 12, 2018, 11:41:47 PM »
I'll miss the old girl she had allot of qualities, but at the end of the day I hate ADV style bikes and even after modding the heck of my xr it still never fit me.
Soooo, traded it in on a 2017 Super Duke GT.  Fantastic bike.  Much different from the XR which is why I like it, but still a larger bike with enough room for me.  My back is already feeling better. Crazy.

I wish I could have kept the XR for some more local trips as it was great to shop with etc., but two expensive bikes is just not a practical move for me.

I'll miss you guys... well, sort of... a little...  :001:

Congrats on the new bike. The XR never seemed to be the bike for you. I wish you well. Enjoy the new bike.  :002:

Thanks OT. The XR is a great bike. It just didn't work for me ergonomically.

It's all about individuality. With the money we spend on toys, we need to be happy with what we buy. Take care my friend, enjoyed knowing you.

Congrats on the Harley Davidson.  Orange and black will suit you as you have a penchant for leather already. 

You should look good on this HD while donning your crotchless leather pants.  See you at Sturgis!  Enjoy the methamphetamine and the sexually transmitted diseases that come with the joy of Harley ownership!
