From R to XR
on: December 08, 2016, 08:06:31 AM
Hi Guys
I'm pleased to say I have traded in my R for an XR and I get it this weekend. Fair looking forward to it.
I liked the R but was needing some more comfort and wind protection so the XR was the choice. The one I am getting I had as a loan bike when my R was in getting the timing chain replaced so I have had a good bit of time on it. Its certainly the most smoothest XR I have ridden.
Looking forward to it and chatting on the XR forum.

Yeh cheers guys,
I've had a few road tests on different XR's and the one I'm buying is really smooth with very little vibes in the bars.
