XR owner in a month hopefully!
« on: August 24, 2018, 11:10:19 AM »
XR Motorsport on order, hopefully delivered by the end of September. I've come through the ranks from GSXR1000, Busa, ZZR1400, K1200S and K1300S which I loved but the clever dealer got me out on a XR for two hours while the 13 was being serviced and I was hooked! I don't think I've ever been so excited about a new bike in my life, I'm wishing the summer away!
Learned years ago the value and depth of info that can be sourced from a good online forum and hoping this site will keep up the tradition!

Welcome Autowatch. I got mine in the same colors a month ago and have clocked 2700 miles of smiles.
Great choice.

Welcome autowatch.  I too fell victim to an XR test ride, while my bike was being serviced.  Let us know when you take delivery.

                                               Red like the Best XR
