Hello from Staffordshire in fact absolute center of the UK.

Hi, welcome to the forum and to XSR ownership. I have only recently bought mine and so far it has proved to be a great choice with a fantastic engine and it's a brilliant all rounder. Mine has an Akro pipe, rack, pannier rails, crash bars, rad guard, speedo relocation, flat seat, and fly screen but they are great bikes in standard trim. Not based too far from you, in Middlesbrough, and can confirm it's a brilliant bike for the North Yorkshire roads. I might see you out and about, mine is a yellow 60th anniversary model.
Hello there. I'm a Yorkshireman, but just sneaked over the border into Lancs. I got my green XSR new last year and have put plenty of miles in commuting to work. I discovered Wray bike night last year and had some good rides to Wray (near Morecambe) on a Thurs evening. Also got a good ride up to the Lakes last autumn. The 700 is a great bike, hope you enjoy it. Look forward to hearing your thoughts when you get the bike. Cheers, Anthony.
