    Hello from sunny Florida...

    I was looking to move up from my CTX 1300 Honda to a 1250RT but...got sidetracked when I saw an ad in the cycle trader of a pristine S1000 XR. I drove 1000 miles round trip to pick it up. Low milage, meticulously maintained, lots of extra parts (windshields, R model pieces, OBD II bluetooth anylizer, seat etc.) and it's RED! Man! What a difference between 700+ pounds and 87 hp and 160hp and 500 pounds. Man... This thing has sparked some passion in this old man.

    I live in Palm Beach County, FL and have owned the same XR since June '16. The power to weight, handling, breaks, riding position...etc etc. 60,000 miles and I have yet to find a better all rounder. Good luck with your new toy.

    60,000 miles...Very reassuring.
    Amazed with the power of this thing, among all of the other attributes. Lovin' it!

     :408:  Hi Fatstrat, good choice of ride, at 62 I decided I needed something to keep my blood circulating so I purchased a 2017 low miler. Enjoying it a lot..  :020:
