Well guys, it's been fun, but due to things changing I've sold the XT!
At least on the new beastie the wife can get on and off easily, and with 6 cylinders, getting away from standstill won't be a prob.
I'm stripping the Wilbers and Givi tankbag & airflow off, and will post up in the for sale section, but if'n anyones interested drop me a PM.
Great forum btw!
All the best.
