Greetings All from sunny Chelmsford
« on: July 15, 2018, 05:13:18 PM »
Hi All,

well thought I'd better seek out a forum and say hi now that I have just purchased an S1000XR Sport SE in Motorsport Colours.  Haven't got it yet but the deal has been done, it is paid for and it is being delivered within a week or so.  It is a late Setpember 2017 bike (UK Registration 67) with 2000 miles on it.  It was loaded with extras like luggage, Navigator V, Datatool Alarm, Givi Screen, EvoTech Performance Rad gaurds and bar end weights, to name but a few.  Nice bike, I like it a lot.  It is a standard suspension model with a low seat.  I'm 5' 11" and it is fine for me.  Not quite flat footed as my heels are about 1 inch up but stable enough.

Had GSXR 1000 K6 last as my main bike for 8 years which was a great bike with an unbelievably grunty engine.  I hardly did any miles on it as it was uncomfortable over distance as I have a neck issue and you couldn't really carry anything but soft luggage on it.

Been riding since 1981 off Road and since 1987 with a full licence.  IAM Advanced test pass in 2005. I have had many other bikes over the years but the last four main bikes were GSXRs.

This is one of 4 bikes I have so I have a choice but I think I'll be choosing the XR for pleasure and distance riding.

Will be back in touch when I have a bit more time.

Happy riding!

Richard.

Hi Richard,

Had mine for 10 months now and loving it :001:  Had the single R for 3 years before. :082:

I'm just down the road to you in Hockley, so we must get together ?

If you want a good local organised hideout, Reiten Motorrad and Cannon do them every month, led by the same guys. Always a good opportunity to meet some other XR riders and find a few new roads  :028:


Enjoy!


Lee.
