Hello from Berkshire
on: August 18, 2018, 10:27:13 PM
Hello all! Just bought a new XR this week in motorsport colours, SE spec with the Akropovich exhaust - collecting next week from Bahnstormer Maidenhead. I'm based in Berkshire and have been riding for about 13 years, my previous bikes have included a GSX-R600, a GSX-R1000 and a KTM 950SM. Had a few test rides on the XR and fallen for it hard and fast, its an incredible machine and I'm looking forward to picking mine up and getting some miles on her. I've just ordered a load of bits for her including new screen, bar ends and crash protection. Looking forward to learning a lot from you guys, any riders in the Berkshire area?  :158:

Thanks for the kinds words everyone! Looking forward to getting involved. I'll post some more pics when I've picked her up. I'm planning on getting OEM luggage, but debating if I should buy it new or try and find a set second hand, over a grand for luggage seems a little eye watering  :033:
