    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.

    More Divided opinion.  :001:  Red like a good wine
                                                   Red like a Ferrari
                                                   Red like a Rocket
                                                   Red like the Best XR

                                                   Blue like a lump of Mouldy Cheese..     :046: :046: :046:
