G'day from Melbourne, Australia!
on: January 03, 2019, 02:08:04 PM
I've admired the XR for quite some time and, in August last year, I spent 10 days riding one with Edelweiss Tours in Eastern Europe.
I was smitten on the very first day and it only got better as I discovered the joys of the Quickshift up and down, literally, the Transvargarason Road and the Alpine Way in Romanian!
I returned to Australia at the end of August and, three weeks later, my new XR HP was parked in my garage!
The romance continues every time I ride the XR and even just looking at it in my garage makes me happy!

Let me know if you're up to a ride up the Black Spur sometime...

Maybe Edelweiss should get a commission from BMW!   :084: :745:
