    I had one. Enjoyed it.

    Keep looking at them myself. If I had another it’d have to be the XRX.

    I've come close to buying one on a number of occasions.

    I prefer the MK1 in orange but I guess the MK11 is the 'better' bike...suspension upgrades etc.

    Lots of them get sold on with very low mileages, not sure why...

    There is/was an issue with the tank cover swelling and then not fitting properly. I'm not sure if that was ever resolved.

    They look great though.....in orange.....

    Yes I've noticed the tank swell problem on some that I've looked at. HD replaced them under warranty but after that you're on your own. Other manufacturers using plastic tanks have had problems too, probably from all the other chemicals in the elixir sold here as gasoline.
    I like the original orange and the white XRX best but there's none I don't like.

    My garage space is getting tight at the moment, hoping Twizz picks one up and provides us a detailed review.
