    Hi from R14ANB

    I used to use a BMW R1100 RT to commute into London but have now changed it for a White Crosstourer.

    The XC is comfortable and does about 40mpg on the daily trip into London in rush hour (about 25miles each way) - changes that have been made so far are an MRA Vario Touring screen, a Go Cruise™ Universal Throttle Control and v-Trec Vario levers.

    Next upgrades are likely to be a Pyramid Hugger and possibly changing out the MRA Vario screen for the higher MRA X-creen Adjustable screen.

    Any feedback on any of these would be appreciated.

    And yes, commuting is carried out in all weathers - but probably not in snow!

    Hi R14ANB and welcome.

    Ive got a Pyramid hugger and am very pleased with it, youll probably find youll need to remove the rear wheel to fit it.
    Ive tried three screens, Standard, Powerbronze and the MRA X Screen, i find the MRA the best for me though many on here like the Givi Airflow.

    All the best

    Paul

    Thank you for the replies - I'll take a look at the Givi...

    It looks like I will also need to invest in a centre stand!

    One other item I'd forgotten is replacing the standard handguards with the Motech Kobra ones (but without the indicators/lights) - feel safer with the metal guards rather than just the plastic.

    Rad guard is a must. One stone and its £600. R&G is discreet and looks OEM.  :028:
