Well Mr.Bibleman you thought you were clear of seeing my Fender flapping in the wind since this topic was locked eh? Looks like MartinFan opened it back up so Im getting out my special green thong just for the ride with you pal!! You see as an "R" rider I know I can get by with riding with just a thong because all the on lookers will be so in tranced with the style and grace of the mighty XRR that they would not even notice what I would be wearing. Now all you old coots with those XRL's would just be laughed at (not only because of your bike) and you would have to limp back home to get your riding gear. Its ok though, one day you "L" guys will turn off your Guns & Roses, get rid of the Parachute pants and Mullets and realize that the 80's are over and that technology for motorcycles has moved on!
