    Hi there!

    I’ve placed an order for the new XR with pretty much all the bells and whistles such as M sport, M billet, Touring, Carbon and other packs. Expected delivery towards end of Dec or sooner if I’m lucky. Needless to say I’m extremely excited because I’m back to riding after a sabbatical. More of a tourer with few endurance rides SS1600, SS2000 and BB2500 (all km) back in the day. Time to actively interact with you all now as opposed to stalking (which I’ve been doing since over a year). Can’t wait…

    You’re right about that Mareng1 haha but my earlier plan was to get the bike for 22 summer and not this winter and since I actually need the bike for my daily commute to work, I’ve mentally prepared myself to brave the elements (except during snowy or icy conditions). I’m now researching the appropriate winter gear to help with the winter riding! Having said all that…I’ll still strive to polish the bike more than usual haha
