Newbie in Rochester
« on: May 13, 2020, 08:31:29 PM »
Hello all,
"New to me" XR being delivered tomorrow. Just sold my 1100 Tuono to get the XR as my old bones couldn't take it any more.
Looking forward to getting to know an inline 4 again as my last  5 bikes have all been V's

Enjoy your new bike. What colour is it?
There's a lot of useful information on here if you need it.
Let us know how it compares to the Tuono  :305:
Cheers.. from sunny Swindon. Andy

Thanks for the welcome
Its white with a few extras
For sure it will be more comfortable than the Tuono I hope.

Looks tidy.
If it hasn't got a radiator and oil cooler guard, it's probably a good idea to invest in one. It's a big area for a stone to aim for. Take it steady out there. I went out today . First time for a while. It looks like most car drivers have forgot what indicators are for  :110:

I thought exactly the same as it’s such a large area so I’ve already ordered Evotech guards and bar ends along with a venture shield kit and the adaptor to plug in my Optimate.
