The XR4 seems to do well for me... The only major negative for most riders is no "magic-button". As I get older and my hip get's, even more stiff, it will likely become more of an issue.
But for now it's a good ride. I have made several modifications... nothing too severe. ....just making it my "own ride".

Very nice. I have a son who is plating an XR4 like yours and he plans to ship it there too. Seems like a natural bike for those parts.
