Hi from Perth, Australia
« on: July 12, 2018, 02:44:09 PM »
Hi all.
I have a 2015 XR, my second bike after a DL650 VStrom.  Currently at +37,000km.
I started the 2 wheeled journey late at 44, but have ridden across Australia 3 times (once on the XR) plus around Mongolia and Siberia (not on the XR).
I love the versatility of this bike, commuting during the week and stretching further on the weekends for 400-1000km runs whenever I can.

Looking forward to being part of the forum.
Cheers
2BF

Hi Bree, thanks.
What, gloat about the cold and wet?  😉  Currently raining, went through some 1°C last weekend, a bit brisk.  I won't mention the days can he glorious though.

I think you meant the VERY SLOW red coloured version.....

You can always upgrade next year to a 2019 triple black :)

Glad you found us here.  Although, it seems that you've been on the road so much, you didn't have time to find us until now!  :001:

Welcome 2BF  :821:

I spent a year in Perth in a previous life & absolutely loved it. Far enough away from everywhere else to be different but still Oz.

Enjoy the bike & the site  :305:
