Another excited owner
on: October 25, 2016, 09:26:03 PM
Hi guys just saying hi. New 2017 blue toy due in December to go alongside my R nine t and wr250r. Just changing the r1200rs for the XR, I need I bit more naughty fun than what the RS can offer !
I don't bounce like I use to!

I'd guess the other 2 might gather dust !

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

The R ninet definitely will not, it is a great bike that takes you back to basics, it has a full titanium akro exhaust that sound fantastic.
All depends on how I feel as to which toy I got out on !

The RS and the XR are very different bikes, as you will find out.

The XR is a hoot.  Enjoy.

Yep I know it's going to be fun, had the s1kr before the rs so i know what to expect, just a bit more suspension travel to help with the jumps and wheelies !!!

You will find the suspension much more compliant than the R.  My R felt really hard compared with the XR...

I did find that the harder you pushed the r, the better she was, until I bottomed her out 😯
