Another great RR Xpat. The only reason I'd consider selling the XR is getting something lighter for rides like these. Ideally I should just get a second bike  :lol8:

Just get DR650. Much better than XR, just because it has starter (good luck kicking your XR for 50th time every day), and as you posted elsewhere - much better than any KTM  >:D

Well done, again. How did the Beta do ? ( except the small tank issue )

According to the old man who rode it very well. But at various stages he said many strange things, like 'the worst is over' that made me take anything he says with a big grain of salt.  :pot:

The XR only has two drawbacks for me in tech terrain, no happy button and it is very tall. But damn man if you've ridden an XRR there are just not many bikes like it at all. I need a second bike  :deal:
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!

As usual Xpat is quite correct.

The Beta didn't miss a beat. Very happy with it If anything its the nut that holds the handle bars that a bit loose.  :biggrin:
