Hi from one X to another X!!
« on: July 27, 2012, 06:15:55 AM »
Hi my names Peter
Decided to sell my beloved honda x11 :019: which Ive had for 6 years and also cash in my 2008 R1 for a cross tourer.
I had a test ride yesterday and initially I thought about turning back early, however once Id morphed into the size of the bike and pulled that throttle, blimey! what a machine. This thing flies and handles. In the end I did not want to return to the shop and could have road all day.
I was mainly worried about how the weight of the cross tourer would affect handling. I can safely say that it does not affect handling at all and the weight is definately not the issue I thought it maybe. I pick up my crosstourer next wednesday :046:, and Ive ordered it with heated grips-well why not. Had them on a GS I owned and they were a great accessory
