I've had the Crosstourer now since April 2012, but have only managed 11,000 km due to my accident. The Crosstourer's V4 engine with the DCT box is amazing, and generally the bike has been fun. The only problems for me are the height of the bike and the front end suspension.
Height - I'm 5' 11", and although that's not short, it's probably the limit for the CT. I am always afraid that when I'm riding slowly/stopping in tight areas that I'm going to drop the bike. It's not happened yet, but I've had a few close calls.
Suspension - I've been through the full range of settings with the standard suspension and just can't get confident with the front end on bad road surfaces - and in the Alps there were some bad twisty roads that had me worried a couple of times. I don't want to tinker with alternative hardware, as it all costs money and it might not work anyway.
I have therefore decided to part company with the CT and will be changing to a much more sedate bike - the CB1100. It's time to do some chillin'.
I will still log-in now and again to see how you are all getting on, but now I've joined the CB1100 forum, so I'll be posting about my new bike there. This is a great friendly forum, and I hope it continues to be so for you all.
I'd like to wish you all the best for the future, and be safe.
