so the xr1000 is now ready to hit the road. i rode my panhead to zero and swapped it with the xr.
i think i'm very lucky to own 2 harley-davidsons, and very lucky that zero can keep one of my bike at their garage.
i rode about 100km yesterday. xr1000 seems running okay. i haven't tried to push the bike yet but it definitely got louder exhaust sound now. next race is in 10weeks. i have plenty of time to practice... if the engine endures.
