Well done Mick, nice bike
First one I've seen in that colour

Couple of questions :
Are the hand guard extenders from Givi ? How d'ya find them ?
After coming from a GSA I find my hands are getting cold. And not just because the grips are lukewarm at best....

Also the seat - standard height or the high one ? How is it compared to the original ? Thankfully the original seat works much better than it looks.

Nice! I did wonder whether to get that colour but went red. I see you have hit the accessories button reasonably hard too with the akrapovic and HP seat too.
Lovely bikes those XRs

Congratulation on a new bike. I'm waiting for mine :002: . Can you tell me please what are those additional LED lights? From where did you get them? I'm thinking to get them too. Are you satisfied whit them? Did you install them yourself or? Is it complicated? Sorry for so many questions and than you for the answers in advance.

The lights are from Wunderlich Germany,fitted them my self.They are more like visual lights to other road users,they dont throw a beam out like spots do.
It comes as a complete kit with brackets,relay,wiring,switch and instructions. I didn't bother with that and just wired them to a PDM60 so that they come on after 7 secs of the bike starting and go off when the ignition is turned off.
