    Well, the xr has gone, it has gone to a good home and now has a lady owner, her partner also rides an xr. :028: They were both very pleased with the bike, so much so they drove up from Dunsford on a very rainy day to collect it from Leeds, over Christmas.

    There was a problem that no one had noticed during the buying/selling process and I'm embarrassed to say I missed it myself, a dent in the front wheel rim. I can only imagine it happened on my last ride on the xr, although I don't recall any hard bumps or major pot hole action and since then it's been cleaned and parked up awaiting a buyer, so I hadn't paid to much attention to it.

    We agreed a solution and everyone is happy.

    This is a great site, lots of very knowledgeable and helpful people  and I've enjoyed being a member. Thanks guys.

    A couple of pics of the new (to me) ride.

    I've added some bits and bobs, had the suspension serviced by Paul at TWS in York. I serviced the drive shaft and changed the final drive Oil and added a splash of colour to the wheels..






    Have a great riding season..  :020:

    Always found motorcycles rather partial to a warm radiator at this time of year never mind me  :001:
