But Karl that's not an XR unless I am much mistaken.

Re: its official the XR is a Hooligan bike

I saw this yesterday, and at first glance thought it to be an XR... but I think it's a pedestrian RR

looked at that first pic and thought it was, my mistake., probably why he got arrested, they would have let him go if had been on a XR

Yep, RR, (first pic does look like XR) but his main problem was turning around and going back. Never go back.

Wonder if the protesters had a permit to block that street?

Re: its official the XR is a Hooligan bike

Karl, it must have been a nimble RR. He dodged and slalomed through the thugs without hitting a single one. Now had he been on a GS? Probably the outcome would have been different. Those behemoths don't dodge much of anything!
