That's what the XRL has going for it. It really is (more of) a street bike. The XRL's & even older XL's do really well on tight twisty paved roads, even in stock trim. Don't be afraid the throw it into a turn like your hitting a berm, or dropping your inside knee down like a street bike at high speeds, even with (the right) knobby tires.

The e-start is always a nice feature, too.

If you're missing the quickness from dead stops, change the gearing to 14-47 or 14-48. Brings everything a lot closer together, but you lose top end. Not a big deal if you're not a freeway super commuter.

Whew, I'm glad to catch this post. I just picked up an '05 XRL w/ 950 miles, and then just under a week later came across a converted (and ready to go) '00 XRR that I just couldn't pass up. From zero to two in about a week. I have been questioning my own impulses after this. (of course everyone else always has) But I'm glad to see there are others, therefore the only conclusion....perfectly rational purchases. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
