Hello from Florida
« on: August 25, 2018, 03:55:52 AM »
Hello Gents (and possibly ladies),

I've had my 2018 XR for about 6 months now and freaking love it. I had a 2004 VFR 800 for 11 years and loved it too, but I'm not sorry its gone. I also ride an 2007 R6 at the track which I look ridiculous on because I'm a rather tall dude. All that being said I've had a look at all the XR forums and this appears to be the place to be. Sooo thanks for having me!

Cheers  :821:

I've learned that having a good bud who is a BMW mastertech is helpful. The machine has performed flawlessly over these first 4000 miles but after reading some of these post i'm nervous. that being said, No mech issues and i've been riding the piss out of it.

11750 miles on mine no problems, and like a good wine it seems to improve with age.   :002: :002:
