Which one, XCx or XRx?
I was happy with my '06 Tiger, moved to a '13 800 XCx to drop some weight, and I find that the '13 has a somewhat harsher ride than the '06. The '13 handles big bumps fine, but pavement joints/small potholes/etc., that the '06 swallowed up, are fed right to my hands.
My question is this: in the '15/'16 XCx/XRx pair, are either or both good at smoothing road flaws? The '15/'16 XC has WP suspension, lots more adjustability, and [I think] the XR has 'lesser' forks/shock than even the '13 XC - which might mean it doesn't resist small bumps [which turns out to be a good thing for me].
Seat height isn't an issue. Comfort is; I am about to embark on another 'coast to coast' ride following the Motorcycle Cannonball.
Departure for me is Sept 6, I need to decide quickly.
cheers and thanks
