Hello from Northumberland
on: October 26, 2018, 09:08:41 AM
Just got my SX she is 2016 white and goes well. Transitioning from a Blackbird so still getting used to her! Looking forward to some tours in the uk and Europe.  :152: :062:

The XR has a big shoes to fill after the Blackbird, real shame they don't make them anymore.

The XR is very comfy and great on less than perfect roads.

It does not have that turbine like engine feel of the Blackbird though :-)

 :400: yes Honda never really replaced the Blackbird or now the Pan European. Lost the plot a bit me thinks. Biggest change for you will be the handlebar position I guess, completely different but once you get used to it you won't look back  :152:
