Hi,

I have had my eye on the XSR since it was announced. I have always liked the look of the classic bikes and I wanted a bike like that. After I tried my friends MT-07 last year I felt that the MT-07 was the best bike I had ever ridden. Then the XSR was announced, and it had the same engine and frame as the MT-07. I could get the best from both worlds!
I am super happy with my XSR700. I have attached a picture from last Sunday when I took the bike out for a spin.

Not done much customization yet. I have the radiator guard which I painted black and the black radiator side covers. This week I will install the new xsr chrome exhaust from akropovic.

Thank you!

The picture is my bike in front of the Vikersund ski jumping hill in Norway. The hill with the current world record of 251.5 meters.
I live just outside Oslo in Norway.

I haven't driven Trollstigen, but that is definitely a place I want to go some day. I think Trollstigen is around 7-8 hours of driving from where I live so it's not too bad.
The Atlantic road is a great ride. I rode there a couple of years ago on a borrowed bike with my cousin who lives quite close. It is something to go up on a bridge and look down at the sea to then suddenly almost ride level with the sea. I was fortunate enough to go on a nice summer day, much like the picture, the sea was nice and calm and not much wind. I'm attaching a picture from that trip.

Gosh darn it, that's absolutely breathtaking. Definitely an experience it seems ! But if Trollstigen is 7-8 hours, that's not too bad at all. Hope you take tons of pictures if/when you end up going !
