Hi from Wakefield, West Yorkshire
on: July 29, 2018, 05:10:13 PM
Been a member for a few weeks having again come from a GS LC, had Honda Blackbirds, Pan, KTM 990 Adv and several other bikes over the years.
I have been a motorcycle Instructor for over 15 years but decided that I have had enough following CBT/DAS learners so now concentrating on Advanced/Refresher training so took the opportunity of buying XR in Motorsport colours from Allan Jeffries. Other than adding GoPrp I wasn't planning on changing the bike much but having just seen photo's of the previous post, Cobra Exhaust and Belly Pan graphics, that theory may well change!

 :400: I too gave up instructing CBT/DAS about 10 years ago as I realised I was not enjoying my biking anymore. Got irritated with the number of idiots who thought they knew better plus effectively teaching people to pass their test as opposed to showing them how to ride well. Now I only ride for pleasure and it's brought back the magic and my smile. I'm sure the XR will give you a big smile every time you ride it  :152:

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandfather....not screaming like the passengers in his car..!

:400: to the XR forum Anchorman :046:

You're right, any plans you had NOT to mod your bike went right out of the window at almost the exact same time you signed up here, funny that eh ? :008:
