    S1000 XR demographics

    How old are you S1000XR riders? I am 71 and bought my XR last fall. I figure I may be at the top of the age range. I am guessing this will be my last new motorcycle. I like everything about the XR except being stuck in traffic at 35 mph. The engine makes an odd sound at that pace. I find the seat even passable,though as the miles pile up I may change my mind about that.

    63 here. I'll admit I added an Air Hawk inflatable seat cushion on mine for long trips. Helps my bony backside. I also use it as my trackbike and love it - such fun passing folks on dedicated trackbikes with slicks when I'm on street tires, and adventure bike with lights and license plate. Will be riding it a lot this season - BRP, Adirondacks, track.
