Hello from Bristol
« on: August 19, 2018, 04:19:23 PM »
I've just traded in my RnineT Scrambler X for a new S1000XR in HP colours, hopefully at local dealer tomorrow :046:
Loved my Scrambler X and it was my first bike after passing my test last October, but being 6'2" I just found it to small on longer rides :003:

 Welcome, do let us know after a week or so of riding the XR if you still crave for the RnineT  - I suspect not  :007: 
Avoiding depression is easy - ride your bike as often as possible

Well three weeks in and just about 400 miles and I can say this is one hell of a bike so comfortable, easy to ride, great handling looks great, sounds great very very pleased so far and it's still in running in mode so god knows what it will be like when the full fury is available.
As mentioned as I've not had a full licence quiet a year yet I will be going steady Eddie for a long time yet, I don't think I'll bother having the doogle fitted for the extra mode:)
