Well I'm about a decade late to the party, but finally got here! The XRX is a bike I've always wanted so when I came across this bone-stock 10K mile one I grabbed it. It was a typical 30 degree Montana winter day when I rode it home, snowed overnight and cold weather since. C'mon Spring, 2022!
Thanks in advance to all of you that have contributed to this forum!

Well done, she looks super clean & original. Plus you got the HD small sport screen. You're going to have a ball on that thing so roll on spring. Fire it up for 10 mins in the shed each week to keep oil around the motor and some charge in the battery and you should be good to go when your weather permits. Best wishes from Melbourne, Australia.

Wow, unmolested, right down to the reflectors and signal light lenses! It's funny how that state of affairs gets cooler the older something gets.....

Welcome form the province just to the north of you, Alberta!

Hello and it's nice to see an original bike, if I were to buy another one that's just how I'd want it. Like darbgnik says above the older it gets the cooler it is to see a stock example.

As soon as all the snow clears, it's game on! Hope to do it more then once this summer!
Yeah, I pissed a few people off that I was passing on some of those curves, but the XR is made for that mountain! Include the Chief Joseph Pass in your ride too!

That snow won't leave until late June. Try to make the Rally, thats when the roads are nice & clear. I'll probably be there this year again.

There'll be two XRs in town! We'll have to hook up! As you know, the pass gets real crowded during the rally.

I believe I saw your bike on the showroom floor at Beartooth Harley Davidson in Billings, MT. I was surprised to see "my bike" on the showroom floor. Albeit, mine is a 2011 and this one was a 2012 with 9K on the clock. It was a very nice, clean XRX. So might see you around the town someday. Maybe meet up at one of the bike nights with the twins.
