So, had a great ride on the old XL, didn't like air too much, had to roll though most of the drains but I wasn't on a mission and could still turn the wick up on the the smoother sections, the gearing normally is 15/40 but that would not have been much fun on the hills so I went 14/48 as per XR600 which was spot on for taking off on steep hills and chugging up any steep pinch with power to spare! Fuel econony was great and even the rear drum did the job river crossings and all, the only thing I touched the whole ride which was around 500ks was oil the new EK chain and put petrol in it apart from the front tube, not bad for a 25 year old bike! Oh and the seat was super comfy and the envy of all the others with their planks they call seats
