Hi
« on: October 15, 2018, 10:11:45 AM »
Hi everyone.  Newbie here from Swindon. Came to the XR from Honda Crosstourer- needed something lighter  . This ticks all the boxes.
 Tried an r1200rs first  but couldn't get on with the  boxer engine.
2mins on the xr was all it took to convince me! 
Went for the Triple Black - good looking bike.  Certainly not the quickest out there!  I'm still running it in. Looking forward to some fun though !
Cheers.  Andy.

Saw that colour-scheme recently at the local BMW dealer - looks rather tasty.

Seems like the XR started as a slow-seller, but is now a very popular model.

Enjoy the bike, before the really crap weather descends (1C deg this morning when I rode home - I’m now firmly in the “those heated grips are crap” camp :151: )

Hi,  I will have to get rid of the XR soon. They are getting to popular.  :001: :001: :001:

Is it because they're so cheap?  :164:

Thanks Jack.  I'm still running it in so I'm a little bit slow at the moment   :305: But once I have it serviced  I'll give you a shout.
Cheers
