As a former XRR junkie me-self, imagine your XR w/ almost twice the horsepower and much more stable on the black stuff. It is longer and heavier but it gives the same feeling of confidence and indestructibility. It's going to ruin you for any other DS bike............FOREVER!

very cool pics, but I need to know - what have you used to mount your road book? I still have not found a really good solution, but yours looks damn near perfect!!

I will owe you the usual pint of beer if I'm ever in Athens or you are in the UK :)

cheers

This little gadget might hook you up, not 100% sure it will fit the super E, well almost...

Add some rubber bushings and mount the RB or bolt it down tight.

nice one thanks - I've pinged them a mail to see if the 4 holes match the RB.

cheers

Markie

EDIT - the one in the pic above does look like it'll put the RB in a better position for reading though. Still nice to have options!!
