I am Ebin from Australia and been riding motorcycles for over 26 years. Been looking to buy an XJR for quite sometime and yesterday came across this one at the teammoto dealers.
I cannot download the pictures from the dealer website, so putting a link to the website if anyone interested in seeing the big pictures.

Its a 1999 XJR1300 with 98 thousand kilometers on the odo. I took the bike for a spin, and surprisingly the motor is BUTTER SMOOTH. Bike has everything stock as I can see, the outside of the engine is dry as new, with no oil leaks, no squeaks or rattles and the bike stays straight and stable even on low speeds. I could not find anything faulty or wrong with it and i rode it for about 15 minutes.
The front brakes were a bit soft and the bike felt a little heavy to flick or zigzag. But the bike stays super stable and hold a straight line if you leave your hands off the bar.
The total price would be around $4500 AUD or 2170 Pounds (this includes all the government fees, 6 months registration). The bike will have a new battery and the tires looks decent.
I want to know, should I go for this ? or would I be crazy if I dont get this ? XJR is the bike I always wanted, and there are other XJRS (2002 to above) ranging from $6500 AUD and above, with mileages from 32K and above.
I found other threads where people are still riding XJR's over 100K on the odo (one guy with 166K ? seriously ?).
I want all you readers opinion on this... should I go for it ? (yes I want to...my emotions), but want expert opinions.
What do you think ???
