New member from Holland
« on: October 14, 2012, 04:47:27 PM »
Hi there everyone. A new member from Holland is greeting you all.
I haven ridden and owned a lot of bikes the past decades, and this Crosstourer is just the bikes I was waiting for. Smooth 4 cylinder Honda engine with shaft drive and plenty of touring capacity.
Ok, is not a trial bike like the Honda Africa Twin,  but that is more than compensated by the overall capabilities of the bike.
In August, I traded in my XT1200Z Super Ténéré, which was the predecessor of a BMW R1200GS, for the Honda. Further I have owned a ridden mostly Honda’s like the CBR1000F, VFR800, and Pan European ST1300.
My bike is equipped with Pyramid - Hugger, Fenda Extenda, main stand, cowl guard kit,
front fog lamp kit, tank pad and heated grips.
Two weeks ago, I made a trip to the Dolomites, and the Crosstourer did very, very well.

Grtz
Gerard

Congrats and welcome aboard.

How does the Honda compare to the Yamaha in terms of handling, suspension and power? Just wondering because the Super Tenere is also on my short-list but I can't test-ride either bike.

i've tried both bikes the CT is far more comfortable and powerful, found the Yamaha a good powerful bike but for me the seat was very uncomfortable.



BUY the CT ........................its the best out of the two
