Jeff was my salesman. Really like Mortonís. Iíve had my 600 mile breakin service and currently at about 1,200 miles on the bike. Itís been fantastic! I love everything about the bike. I came from a Yamaha R6 and find the XR super comfortable and easier to ride than the R6.
Have added weighted bar ends, Evotech frame sliders, radiator guard and wheel spindle sliders. Akrapovic carbon exhaust, Innovv K2 front and rear camera, Hornig windscreen a Wunderlich mount that moves the GPS above the TFT screen. Waiting on a custom seat from Dannyís Upholstery in Cíville. So far no problems with the bike. Everything has been perfect 👍😎!

I meant Jeff as well. All good people.  You have been really busy fixing it already. Iíve only had mine a week and look forward to riding this week.  Looking to add a top case soon and possibly side bags.  Iíd love to see some pics of the mods you made.

I bought my F900XR from Morton's too. We could start a club.  :400:

Evotech and Cymark ship from the UK to the States. The shipping is more expensive but they do not charge us VAT.  :001:
