Oh the choices!!
Well, had a GREAT time taking all the Demo rides for 3 days! I rode everything more than once trying to get the idea of which bike is the best for me.
2-up and going any kind of real distance, the XC was ideal. Plush, smooth, balanced ride like drive my recliner!
Solo, for commuting to work and gym and hoping around town I really loved oh the Kingpin and High-ball handled. Was able to ride a Kingpin with X-bow exhaust, and just loved the rumble and deep sound and vibration when cracking down on it.
I've read the post about XC/XR exhaust, seemed most focused on sound. I don't need loud exhaust. I just want deep-throated sound and good vibration. Any suggestions? RPW maybe? Are the tips just for looks? Kinda like the look of the big mouth tips...
If the XR, bags were quick disconnect and it came any some other color besides black or red. Love the white and sand 2-tone of the Kingpin paint color... I really like the idea of being able to strip the bike down for my work week. and only throw the bags and shield on when headed out of town...
Maybe the 2012 XR will be more verstile. Any ideas when they normally announce the new year models?
