No need to disappear.

Lots of folks in here are interested in your experiences with the XR so do stick around and share your thoughts.

I agree with Brian. The XR was on my list of possible replacements for my K1300S, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.  I'd be interested in hearing what you think of the XR post a K1300S and if "living with it" is a better (or worse!! :(  ) experience. 
Correct rear brake use is scientifically proven to shorten stopping distances in EVERY road situation.

Show you know what you're doing and use your rear brake!

I had the XR (2019 model), for more than 6 months as a company courtesy vehicle.
XR is a fast, full of electronics, extremely comfortable, very agile, loveable, but very demanting bike, and it doesn't forgive errors. A trip to the island of Evoia narrow roads some 70 miles fm Athens proved a very bad idea. A complete set of parts almost 80% of an XR minus the engine rests now in my  garage. Hands up for those that they need parts.
The K is getting old but so do I, I'll stick with my old lady.
Embrace the wind.

As a few of you have said I will stick with the club and report how I get on with the new XR. No delivery dates yet, possibly as late as April.
Cheers All
