I went to my local bike shop (Premier Bikes, Didcot- top chaps) with every intention of buying a mint 1999 R1 they have in stock, but the test ride changed my mind- I really didn't get on with it, sad to say I think I'm getting too old for a head down arse up position.... anyway I spied a really nice looking 2003 XJR for the same money. Rode it, loved it, bought it. Here it is shortly after I had fitted some Scorpion cans:
ooooh nice , is it faster than a bullit, i'm , with envy

Its easy enough to be happy,when the world rolls along like a song
But a mans worthwhile,if he can smile when everythings gone fucking wrong

Had one myself in a bid to slow me down,But it only made me try harder.
Really rewarding to ride fast as the suspensions like jelly and it weighs a tonne. For me it was great bike
Many congrats!!!! Nice colour.
I bet you can tow a caravan with that motor. No more gear changing for you then.

Have now liberated as few extra horses by fitting FJ1200 inlet rubbers, cutting down the airbox tube and putting in a K&N filter and Dynojet- this really has made a great bike almost perfect IMO
Black and yellow no two colours go together better
Very nice mate, very very nice!

That is indeed a lovely looking bike. I knew someone who fitted a screen to theirs. Highly practical but ruined the look of it. Yours is definitely the best colour. And what a lovely looking hedge too. But where did you find the sunshine, or is that photoshop?
Nice bike mista, not sure about the bellypan though.
Precursor to the Fazer Thou, best bike ever!
