I've put some good Scottish routes on the best biking roads website under the username fit like.
 Well impressed with my bike, I'd never ridden one before buying so was a bit apprehensive having had 22 months on a K1600, glad to rediscover my inner hooligan !! Also glad that all the "vibration" stories seem to of been blown out of proportion, if your sitting in that Rev range for any length of time I suggest you should of bought a GS

Totally agree... First 150 mile it was a bit chattery but its a.brand new bike.. Now with 350 on it,  she has settled down immensely and become a lot smoother... The more I talk.about it, the more I want to ride it lol...

That was a fast first service arrival time, eh?  Left the 1600 myself for the XR and haven't looked back!  What a ride!!   :002:
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

Yeah, I had a S1000rr a few years back so knew I wanted the limiter off ASAP !!
 Can't say I'm loving the chain maintainance and associated mess !!
 Hoping its a wheelie monster once I can access pro modes

It is a wheelie monster even with my wife on the back (She did not appreciate that) oops  :002:

Though for pure hooligan I would have gone with the single or a street triple r mark 1 {Better geared}.

The XR is just a little to comfortable and refined for hooligan  :164:

I do the odd euro trip as well so should be a good alrounder.
 In BMW Aberdeen as I write waiting for bike to get its first service, plug is in my pocket ready to fit
