    Hi all, Just bought bought a 2019 XR in Triple Black. 1st BMW for me. Owned Triumph, Honda, and Suzukis and Yamaha as far back as 1980. Look forward to getting a few miles in this year on the XR (only managed one quick run on greasy roads so far   :190:)

    Welcome Bob.

    Sure you will like the XR - just a double-edged sword buying now-

    Might be cheaper, but you don't get out to fully enjoy it!

    I imagine you are very used to the roads to the south, Ullapool to the west, and A9 north.  The XR is a great bikes for all of those.

    All the best for 2022, here hoping the weather turns and we get out soon.
    Love both the back roads from Nairn & Forres to Grantown on Spey, brilliant. Obviously via the Lecht and then Deeside and across to Peterhead for me. Great day out.
