 Glad you found us.

Please be careful what you post here.  While generally helpful, Bree and Snatch are waiting to pounce any innuendo they can out of a posting.

Don’t ask my how I know this.

Totally different bike, I still have my Tuono APRC as well as the XR.

The XR is very grown up in comparison to the Tuono, however you won't have to visit the petrol station quite as often on the XR :-)

The XR feels a bit of a lump in comparison moving it around at slow speeds, once you are moving though its deceptively quick. On the Tuono you know your going as its buzzing like an angry wasp :-)

I changed the Austin Racing can (too loud) to an Arrow can on the Aprilia at the weekend. Oh what an engine sound, I do miss that on the BMW. Though the BMW does have a bit of a howl at high RPM :-)

If you actually want to go somewhere further than 80miles and take some kit with you, the XR is actually really very good.

That’s why I’m buying one Bazza, really enjoyed the v4, but, the little niggles are getting too much now. Test rode the xr, loved it

My Tuono has been 100% reliable, and I have done a couple of 2000mile tours on it. However the tiny tank range just get annoying after a while.

So I ride it on days out now and really enjoy it. Its got K-tech cartridges and a Nitron rear shock etc. I am fancy some forged wheels for it too. I am lucky and I have a matt black 2015 RSV4 too. So would like a set of the nice red forged rims from a RF for that. Then put the black forged rims on the Tuono :-)

I am also pretty keen on an IRC blipper for it after riding the XR for a few years :-)
