    New XR owner from Bolton

    Hi Just joined the forum  after trading in a R1200GSA  for a new S1000XR TE..
    New bike is currently  sat in dealers  waiting for me  to be able to get back on a bike  after a small incident  when i took out the XR demonstrator  and hit a patch of leaves and mud  which resulted  in loosing the front end  and 3 broken ribs.
    More an embarrassment than anything  but I've been pretty lucky up unitil this after 37 years of accident free riding.
    needles to say i loved the XR  so text the sales guy from my A&E bedside and placed the order :)

    just wanted to say  hi 

    Cheers Gary

    That's quite a test ride, and sorry, but your post made me laugh.
    Hope your ribs are on the mend, and you get on your new XR soon enough  :400:

    Welcome!

    Bad luck on the demo - I presume you never took a hit on the repairs?

    Easy done on leaves, and some roads become fairly unusable when there are only two clear tracks in the lane and the rest is pulped leaves.

    I think my riding year has finished now - roll on spring!

    Welcome to the forum, i think i've seen another post somewhere about your 'off' ... cant recall but i'll guess it was on instagram

    What colour XR did you go for and where did you get it from out of interest,

    cheers, Rob
