Default Bryan's 2011 XR

Today was a big day. This morning, the buyer for my Road Star Warrior picked up my bike. It was a bit sad to see her roll away out of my driveway for the last time

But, alas, the Warrior had to go to make room for the bike that I've wanted for the last two years. After I sold the Warrior, I took a pile of money over to Randy's Cycle in Marengo, IL and completed the deal. Tonight, the owner Randy braved the crappy and icy elements to deliver my bike safely to my garage. It was pretty treacherous out there and he could barely back up my driveway. But we were able to get it into the garage unscathed.

I'll be posting some nicer pics in the Show your CR thread when the weather clears up and I can pull her outside, but I took a few quick pics and a video tonight. Sorry the backdrop of my poorly insulated garage ruins some of the shots, but you get the idea. On to the pics!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Excellent!!

I know what you mean about seeing the old one go but now it's time to look forward with your new XR.

By the way it's XR not CR. I know it doesn't make sense at first but since the X Country and X Roads are both Cross bikes it makes sense after a while.

Bryman,

What is the switch under the speedo and bars??????

I see it says hi and low but I am confused. I say this cuz I have a switch there as well but mine is for my running lights but you do not have them.

CONGRATS by the way

I will be getting floorboards and a back rest for momma soon.

Thanks bigseadaddy! That switch is for the heated grips. I hope my GF appreciates the floorboards and backrest. They weren't cheap!

Congradulations Bryman! Too bad you can't get out and ride it now; maybe it's a good thing because you could end up doing what I did. I picked my bike up on a Thursday afternoon and had to take it back into the dealership on Monday morning because I had already gone 100 miles past the 500 mile service requirement.

Your GF will probably love the backrest and floorboards. They should make her feel more secure which will probably make her want to ride more.

I hope once the roads are clear you've got some leave saved up. Since you'll have some catching up to do you may not want to stop once you hit the roads.
