Hi all

  1. I have been having fun on my Kawasaki W800 for the last 4 years and clocked up 45,000 ks so far and am looking at adding a Yamaha XSR 700. Hope to get lots of info from the forum. :)

  2. thanks Mark

  7. welcome to the forum mate
  8. Welcome to NR...

    The XSR looks good but why stop at the 700...go for the 900.

  9. The 900 is tempting but 99% of my riding is two up with my pillion in a million.
    Over a 250,000 km together so passenger comfort is a big factor.
    The 700 would appear to have lower footpegs.
    If anyone has any thoughts on increasing passenger comfort or just their experiences in this regard I would appreciate any comments.
  10. Thanks mate. :)
  11. Thanks!
  12. Thank you!
  13. Thank you! :)
  14. have you purchase the XSR 700 yet? How do you feel?
  15. The Yamaha XSR 700 didn't turn out to be as suitable as I had hoped. Great bike but not suitable for lots of 2 up riding. So I am now the proud owner of a Triumph Street Twin. :)
