Success, after messing with camera settings to reduce size.

I had not ridden with these panniers yet, just tried them on for size.

I do intend to get a SW Motech Street rack in which should help with the strap over the rear of the seat

So I decided not to change my mind and just go for it and wait for my brand new F900R to arrive around 10th of August.  :763:

I got mine on EBAY from a Chinese store.
It is the same layout and looks as the original BMW one.

I found the Stock exhaust to be the quietest, Low revs deliver the trick.
It is quiet, fits the layout of the bike and is solid.

personally, I like the stock one,

I mainly heard of people doing the other way around - Making bikes louder  :005:

I just finished a 10 days travel from London to Bucharest.
My setup is Givi Trekker ... which I used to have on my old KTM.

Love this setup, its balanced, rigid, can hold TONNES of content ... and most of all it is a Givi quality.

I have just returned from a 300 Km ride through the country side and passed lots of Farms and not a single animal was hurt or frightened as a passed near
them.  Not sure the same animals would appreciate all those noisy Harley's that they have to put up with or are you the only bike on these roads. :020:
Maybe you could just pick neutral and idle pass those frightened animals. :047: Nice one. I think you are winding us up. Well Done. :762:

Scooters are mainly for the city. Not that you can't go RTW with 600+, heck there are people who do the RTW with 125cc motorcycles.
But the main difference is that scooter and adventure/sport bike have in common only that they are 2 wheeled. Totaly different type of vehicles.
With the scooter you don't think about gears. But as you can see the scooter has 1/3 of the power of the 900R - 35ps and 35Nm vs 105ps and 98Nm.
If you are going to use it primray for the city maybe yes scooter is better option. But if you think you will want to go and explore beyond the city the bike is better option - better to have the power and not use it than not to have it.
I also commute everyday but almost every weekend go on trips - I wouldn't change the XR. It's perfect even for the city for me. My Wife has Tuono660 and she is starting leaning towards getting a scooter for the city.
It's a tough question and nobody can give you a straight answer. It's all up to you

p.s. Don't worry eventually you will find there is something you don't like with your bike but that's with all bikes. There isn't full happines. If there was we wouldn't nottice it ;)

Thanks again! As a very beginner and Im sure you guys are being on the same road as me trying to figure out which bike is best for your needs... I just test drove the C400X BMW scooter and... its fantastic... And I just thought "did I made mistake", because I'll (at least at first) drive the bike mostly in city to get my job done and after getting used to it - some mountain roads... In my dealership they told me its not to late to change my mind in my order till tomorrow... So... Im on a crossroad here... Will C400X cover all my needs and be more comfortable and better in use in city traffic, but also a fun to drive... I dont know... What you guys think? Every opinion will be appreciated  :763:
