And people call me a bike tart ;) (thumbs)

Well done you (thumbs)

Is this to replace something or just to add to your collection?

If the cap fits Steve :whistle:

The XSR is replacing the SV650 I have, not enough room in the garage for three bikes :(

Certainly not planning on too many more changes, the CB500x will do nicely for commuting into work, and longer trips away, the XSR shorter trips, especially at the weekend when the need for some speed is felt, all within the speed limits of course :dry: .

We must meet up at Goobrand & Ross by Corgarff Castle some time in the near future, gales and floods permitting!

Sounds like a plan . . . . . . fire a date/time at me and we can take it from there.

Thread Hi-jack over ;)

A different XSR700 with Stag Pollidah etc in the background.

Picture today so after the loss of Chris's photo's. Hopefully the weather will be as good for the various meets in Ullapool this month.

Nice bike Mister.

Mine's nearly done (19-inch front plus some bolt-ons).
Got some K60s and an enlongateable Wilbers on the way.
Just faffing about with a mudguard.

Thanks, yours looks subtley different, but good. What's the make of the screen you have? I can see one would be useful to keep some bugs / rain off my body. Your tail pack reminded me I had a spare Hein Gericke one, fits a treat even if it's not very big :D

Screen is an old scratched Slipsteamer Spitfire cheapie bought it in the US and now on its 4th bike.
I'm sure there's similar from Puig, etc

Ah ha, just remembered - I posted similar on advrider too.
Lucky backup; maybe we should all do it from now on.
