Congratulations and welcome to this amazing forum! :)
Glad to see I'm not the only one who bought an XSR700 as their first bike.

I had a few people tell me that it was too much power and a bad idea, but after 1 week I feel very comfortable with the bike.
Someone far wiser then me said on most of the roads were you would want to a motorcycle all a rider needs is 70 bhp in a light decent handling bike.
So we have all the box's ticked just ride for yourself when some 150 bhp blasts past you on a straight it means nothing... I could open up a moto gp on a airfield it means nothing biking is about riding well through the twists and turns.
Friend told me I'm far faster and smoother on my xsr and previous versys then I was on my MT 09tracer or other bigger bikes.
Enjoy these brilliant days on this wonderful bike that we have acquired.
