One more XT

Got the ferry from Dublin to Liverpool to pick up this little beauty.
It rides so much nicer than my '02 640 Adv.
Company for my other Tenere too.

It's the taking part!

For sure I wouldn't be competitive but I'd like to see what I can endure on the bike. I'll dig a little deeper with other clubs and see if I can go for a run.
Thanks for the input.
