Hi and welcome Brother. Out of curiosity as I thought about buying a Kawasaki Z100SX how was it and I know you've only just got the XR but is it miles ahead as a sports tourer. I never got to test one as when I rode the XR that was it I knew I had to have it especially as I'm a BM man now and have been for the last 10yrs :001:

Don't get me wrong it's a cracking bike but it's trying to be a sports bike and a tourer but it's good I'd have another one but I'm 6 ft 6" so I got cramp in legs and back ache

The SX looks nice and sometimes I tend to think about my XR which is the lowered-suspension version, to be a competitor of the SX as it stands   :002:  Would test one just to learn the differences yet I am more tan satisfied by my XR coming off a S1000r
