RED XR's
« on: August 10, 2016, 08:28:28 PM »
This is getting to be a piss take with my mates on a ride out.
Did the TT, saw about 8 red XR's, pretty sure not the same one loads !

Run to Wales, passed by 3 red un's in about 2 and a half hours !

Did the Lakes last week, 1 red un at Devils, not 5 miles up to Hawes another red un...either they are selling by the bucket load or someone else is treading my routes !

Therapy...

You'll never see a motorbike parked outside a psychiatrists.

There may have been white ones, but you won't have noticed them, as they blend into the background! :008:

Scientific fact that entities travelling at light speed are invisible.  Thats why you never see a white one.

 The reason  white ones are rarely seen is simpy because they are always way ahead and slightly more exclusive !

Even Rich knows that white ones are superior to red in every way
You tell me how fast I was going Officer !

There was a red one at the TT dripping with CF...and BST wheels.  Had a chat with the owner - it was out the front of the main grandstand.

I spotted this one at the Ramsey Sprint during the TT. Anyone from this parish?
