Yeah, man!  I wanna see it!  We all got the fever!!!

 I left it at the shop do to shipping damage. The shop was up front about it and is fixing it for free of course. Also waiting on a couple of add-on thingies to be installed but I DO have some pictures!








 We REALLY need a dancing smiley!

I will pick it up Tuesday or Wednesday according how work goes.........


Congrats on the Honda ! Interested if you're keeping the XR ?

When in trouble, shower down on the throttle. It either fixes the problem or ends the suspense.

 The Honda shop called me last night and said it was ready! I took a 1/2 day off work and picked it up. :)
1st ride impressions?
It feels very comfortable. Seat is not hard and I think, not to soft. (Time will tell about that.)
Power is good. We will see if it lofts the front wheel as easily as my Honda 2000 and something XR650-L. ;) Hopefully easier than my Harley XR1200. :)
 Brakes feel good, with enough power to stop from 60mph pretty quickly.

 There is a lot to learn about the dash and the switch gear. It has ABS and torque limit levels, 3 I think. I believe this will be a factor on how much I will like/dislike the motorcycle. I have never had a motorcycle that has this many options...........or ANY options really, on controlling the bike.  All the motorcycles that I have owned have been pretty basic. The Honda XR650-L has been the same bike since it came out in 1993(?). The Harley 2012 XR 1200 and my 2000 Harley Springer are......well.....Harley's. Pretty basic motorcycles. Pretty much ALL the motorcycles I had in the 1990's were designed in the 1980's. The motorcycles I had in the 1980's were designed in the 1980's.......using pretty much the tech of the 1970's. ;)
 The ones I owned in the 1970's were a lot like my 1980's motorcycles except they had points ignition.
 Time will tell but right now, I REALLY like this bike.






 BTW, I will be moving this to the motorcycle section.
