Default It's official

I am a Vic enthuisiast....I have put over 500 miles on the XR in the last 3 days and have molded myself to the machine and am very impressed. Very easy to ride around town and finesse into parking etc. slow speed stuff - very nimble in the fast turns and flat out fast when you twist the throttle and hold for a "little" while, when it gets into it's powerband-smiles happen both from internal and external forces...
What can I say- it looks great-- rides excellent and is fast as hell for a bagger or any bike for that matter....
NO BUYERS REMORSE HERE

Congratz!
The slow speed handling of the XBikes probably has me sold on them. Even, if the wife gets her own, so I wouldn't need 2-up...

Wait till you open up the intake and exhaust! Even better; put some Lloydz cams and a fuel controller in it as well.

Yeah, I am impressed with parking lot handling - it turns tightly and has good balance - I often keep my feet up til the last second because of the stability.

Yup, that will be happening down the road...I will not fool myself into saying I am gonna leave it stock - I have never left any vehicle I've owned stock! Always trying to make it better and more "me"...
