    Hi all from New Zealand.  Just purchased a 2017 model with 28000kms (my first BMW) and what an intro to the brand. These machines are outstanding.  I've been lucky enough to ride some really nice bikes but the XR as an all round bike takes some beating. The bike was owned by a good mate of mine and was white from new but he doesn't like blending in much so painted it Lambo Blue. It's got Cobra Hypershots pipe, rad & cooler guards, HP seat, aftermarket tinted screen, handguards and carbon fibre bits with more to come as you can never have enough carbon. Having a think about the Dominator decat but concerned it might be a bit loud with the shorter pipe, I dont need the attention of the local constabulary. I ride it in Dynamic as I'm a 55 year old child and love the pops on the overrun :005:  Looking forward to being part of the forum.

    I went back to the standard pipe for two reasons. Noise on long trips and where the power comes on

    I also swapped rear sprocket to 2 teeth less then 1 less. Much better higher speeds on long trips.
    In Melbourne Victoria Australia. Been riding my whole life. 55 now. 22 bikes.
    Currently riding 30,000km annually with friends
    No commuting and staying away from highways. Always looking for twisty roads and new adventures.

    I went to a 42 rear sprocket--I didn't like the high revving either--it's still got plenty of boogie and it's another excuse to use the quickshifter :001:
