I know your interested in the 900xr Kwacky.

Would these Triumphs be of interest or are they more expensive for very similar kit?

The power to weight ratio doesn't look the best. I guess it depends how it handles. I've not had a look at the bike in any detail or its competition. It's usually down to how much equipment/tech you get with the bike for the price.

Test ride booked for next month. It's the earliest I can get out to them.

Test ride is weather dependent. Someone binned a new Africa Twin leaving the car park. The rider blamed the wet roads :x
