Good evening
on: November 23, 2021, 06:15:27 PM
Hi All,

New member intro.

Placed an order for a 750GS back in May for a 1st September delivery (new reg plate day here in UK) but was delayed for many issues; earlier floods in Germany, parts unavailable etc.

Well changed mind and replaced order with an F900XR with following options;
Light White
Active, Comfort & Dynamic Packages
Cruise Control
Handguards
Tyre Pressure Control
Also ordered side panniers Light White with inner bags and Engine Spoiler in grey dealer fit options.

Delivery "due" last week of 2021 but not holding my breath!  Will be my first ever bike after completing a Direct Access course for my full A Licence back in August.

Except for the price difference, I'm really surprised that the XR doesn't take away more 750 sales.  I always viewed the 700/750 as an 850 that'll never go off-road, but the XR fills that roll so much better.  The XR still has enough suspension travel for dirt use and you can mount cages and skid plates along with dual sport tires should you want to get adventurous,, i think you'll find your unintended choice serendipitous.

Totally agree with the off road comments.
I will probably never venture off road but the extra suspension travel will be very useful on some awfully maintained British roads.
Cheers for reply RCB.

Welcome,
That wait is a drag, It was the same with mine.
It'll be worth it though.
Where are you based?
