After 6 months riding a Honda CB125R on a CBT, I have passed my tests and I am expecting to collect my XSR700 on Tuesday! Complete novice rider but really looking forward to getting out on the Yamaha!

Welcome to the forum. You'll find the XSR quite a bit different to the CB125 - take it steady on those busy roads up there!

Welcome from Oregon, USA! You will love the XSR, probably only adjustment to get used to is the clutch/shifting into 1st action. Honda clutch is like butter, Yamaha is like gravel.

Welcome. As someone who's been through a few bikes, I can confirm that you'll love the XSR. Since you've just completed your full test, I'd advise you take it easy at first and ease your way into getting used to the higher power daily.
Enjoy and take care.

Welcome to the club pal!

I also got my XSR a few weeks ago as a complete novice rider. Loving it so far! Enjoy the learning curve, and take it easy like everybody says. I'm enjoying growing into it and I'm sure you will too!
