Just Plain Bill, checking in from Carson City NV
« on: December 02, 2014, 12:43:28 AM »
Should probably change my name to "Crusty Old Bill" - being as I'm old as dirt and have been riding since college in the late 1950's.  A year ago, I bought a NC700XD and consider the DCT to be the answer to an old man's prayers - it lets me direct what little is left of my attention span to staying upright and not to changing the gears up and down. :008:

The NC700 is rather limited in performance and I've been eyeing the VFR1200A DCT until I learned about the CrossTourer, which is far better suited to my ergonomics and riding style.  One thing I intend to do as a member of the forum, is to be a voice to America Honda advocating importing the CrossTourer into the US.

Hi and  :400: Bill
 I thought for a second that I was going to read about the first USA owner of a CT on this forum.
It's a real shame that Mr H ' is denying you all the chance.
I ride a DCT and I'm only in my 40's , so the system appeals to many. Aprox 50/50 sales now. :031:

Hopefully the situation will change in time and you might be hearing from me again - as the first USA owner...  :046:

Hello and welcome Bill.

 Passing through Carson City next year on our South West oddessy to Virginia City and along (the loneliest) Highway 50 (a wee detour onto the 2/722?) to Eureka NV and beyond...


... unfortunately not on my CrosstourerDCT or even a motorcycle. :003: I'll be a tin can man. Nae roof right enough.

I read in the MCN (UK weekly bike paper) that Honda have been patenting a turbo on the NC twin! Theres your POWA! right there. :082:

Good luck and get intae them! (Honda :001:)

 :400: along to the CollecTive "Crusty".
Please forgive me for asking what may already be an answered question, but why on earth does Honda US not import the CT?
