    Hey there all. Just took delivery of a 2020 Ice grey XR loaded with all options except M chain and carbon package. I got a great deal on it as it was a demon bike that had been sitting due to the front caliper recall and no one was willing to wait an indeterminate amount of time for the caliper to be replaced......Well, at least one person was willing to wait  :001:. I am super impressed with the fit and finish of the bike as well as it's performance and handling. Coming from my MT-09 it is a completely different experience. Much more refined and manageable unless you really want it to let her rip. My MT-09 wants to rip your face off and wheelie everywhere and I'm getting over that part of my life and getting onto a more civilized riding experience. This is my first BMW motorcycle and interested to see how well she holds up to my abuse. Excited to be here.....I already have a lot of questions.
