I always liked XR1200s.
This one wasn't broken, however they rods seemed to be a bit of a thin gauge metal. Mounted under the rear cowl seemed pretty tidy though.The stock XR1200 saddlebags don't seem to hold up well. About half the used ones I've seen for sale have something wrong with them.
Maybe so , but I will continue my quest the best I can (high mileage Norton) . Like for example , If I go to New York INOA rally , it will be on the Norton . I know what I am capable of and what the 961 is capable of. I plan to carry on here on Access Norton . Don't worry folks , I am not going Harley crazy OK ? The XR attraction has been with me for a long time , it is not a perfect bike either it needs me too.Nice.
Something tells me the 961 will accrue less mileage henceforth...
Well that’s true Tony and I suppose is partly why I posted the comment! Actually it’s not the SL that’s my issue, I too have another bike arriving soon that essentially fills the same genre as the 961 does for me, so I’m already struggling with the notion of how to ride two similar bikes, and that my 961 will accrue even less miles than I’ve managed so far !The same can be said for you too FE ! Like when you finally get the Superlight 650 !
