After waiting 44 years to take my bike test I've just purchased my XSR in garage metal as my first bike. Love the look and the way it handles plus it's comfortable for my 6'2" size. Just trying to get those running in miles done ;-)

I've heard that waiting times for UK bike tests have been increasing recently - but 44 years......? Good choice for a first bike. Welcome to the forum!

No major plans for customising it at the moment. I had fittted a Puig screen yesterday which i tried this evening. When I got back I noticed it had almost broken off the brackets. Glad it didn't happen whilst I was riding it. Now to see if the company in France will do something about it.

Welcome to the forum Warichodo. Good choose of color on the bike :) And good luck with the running in, i'm in that process myself but the spring here in Sweden seems to be taking a pause. Temperatures around +4 and freezing winds...

Intros are powerful just for getting your footprint on the forum. Never used to do them but when I started on other communities it develops some nice rapport with the community. Sometimes I get too caught up in the product or service the community is about and not the human side of it all.

Do you think the screen might have been overtightened?
Hi, I know it looks like that may have been the case but i was very careful not to over tighten just so I didn't stress the plastic. I put on a little threadlock and just nipped the screws very gently. Anyway, SD MOTO have refunded the purchase with no argument. I'm not sure if I will bother with another screen though.

Thanks

Thanks to all for the welcome messages. FYI, the company has refunded without argument and without having to mess about sending it back to France, I thought that was pretty decent of them, SD Moto is their name on e bay. Not sure I will bother with another screen though.
