    The XB is completely different. Actually after having the EBR, I enjoy the XB even more. I agree, they are not replacements for each other, rather complements.
    The guys are right, you will laugh, cry, and poop yourself at the same time.

    Rb.

    Just curious, why does the EBR make you enjoy the XB more?

    Lmao. Yea pretty much. Plus I just got 50 mpg on the XB.

    The EBR is loads of fun. But it is 185hp and rowdy. However for a, let’s say ‘simplier’ ride. The XB wins. It’s the jump on it anytime and go. Now, another factor is that where I live the normal speed is 35mph. I’m sure the ebr would be happier at a more normal 45mph in a normal city.

    Just my two cents --I bought a new EBR RX in 2014. I couldn't decide--fairing(RX) or easy riding position(SX). I ended up getting the RX and raising the bars so now have a nutzoid kind of cruiser.

    Of late I have been tooling around on the Uly and the RX sits, unlicensed, in the barn--what does that say?

    Not sure but I think it's saying, "What did I do to be exiled to the barn"?

    Nah, What "it" is saying--"I have 15,000 miles, newish tires and am looking for a new home".

    I am enjoying the putt mode that the Uly offers, plus the roomy luggage. I think hyper-mode has left me. Another thread today on this forum refers to the "the siren song----", well, in the case of the RX it was a different sort of Siren and potentially very expensive.

    Up in the mountains, the Uly is sufficiently sporty and to date it is my highest per day miler ever. Just eats up the miles and doesn't beat me up. I am trying to shift emphasis from burning up the miles to longer campouts and maybe some fishing.

    Loved the RX, had to have it--now is different.
