I have had my 2011 XR for exactly 2 years and I turned 16K today! I remain very happy with it. My likes include Power, handling, comfort, storage space, and style. Dislikes are the exhaust tone (or lack thereof), and a pretty pathetic horn. Tip over protection is very very very good! I joined the tip over club one day last summer when during a sudden stop, the front tire hit an oily spot and locked up. Slide down the road for about 15 -20 feet. No visible damage at all unless you get on your back and look at the bottom corner of the left crash bar. I have several Harley friends who are seriously considering upgrading to Vic....
