Hello everyone! I've been doing a lot of reading about track modifications that are available for the XR, and I stumbled across this site. Fantastic! Can't wait to pick up the new bike this Saturday and break it in on the hour long ride home.

Glad to meet you all!

Welcome aboard Robert and enjoy the ride home. If you didn't get orange or black, you got the best color.

Sinister Hardcore Black it is. I'll blot out the sun as I ride it home tomorrow morning.

I hear orange is the new black.

Congrats on the new bike. I love my traditional looking vitamin C (orange).

Robert,
I was curious where you got your bike from ? I'm in the Cincinnati area and have been looking for a XR1200 for the last few months. The dealers are wanting $500 over retail so I'll just keep looking..
Thanks,
Scooter:scooter:

They aren't selling quite so good down here in the Atlanta area. I got $500 off MSRP and a $500 gift card for accessories. They said I could apply it to the bike if I wanted.

It is a lot longer of a drive. But something to consider.

I got mine from Hale's HD in Mansfield, OH. The sales manager is named Jeff Miller, and he's a great guy. I bought two Buells from him before the XR, and have nothing but good things to say. I paid well below MSRP on my XR1200. They also sell Yamahas there, so their service dept understands sportbike performance as well.

His number is 419-522-8602, x.23 Give him a call, he'll hook you up!

Well I got to ride about 80 miles today and had a blast.. Now who's got some ideal for some grips. These things are the same ones as my Electra Glide and just to hard for me.
Thanks,
Scott
