Defected from the S1000R site
on: June 13, 2016, 11:09:24 AM
Hi all

Just picked up a spanking new white XR on Saturday with all the toys and luggage after 12 months on a S1000R.
A few reasons why i changed, UK roads just not good enough for insane speeds and hard suspension, i came from 5 years
a GS pilot and still missed that type of ride and style.
The XR ticks all my boxes and really should have got one first time round.
The Wife will probably come out of passenger retirement as she hated the R but like the look of this one.
Got 4 days to get 500 miles on it before i go away to Spain/Portugal for a week with the lads, looks like a wet few days of riding for me this week  :012:
Did 80 miles after i picked it up and was grinning all the time. :001:
Quite a happy chappy
