Hello from Bogotá- COLOMBIA
on: May 24, 2015, 04:49:41 PM
I bought a Honda Crosstourer VFR1200X (automatic transmission) by end of 2014.  I live in Bogotá - COLOMBIA (South America). It´s a incredible bike but I am having difficulties with its weight and when I have to drive it in reduced spaces because the accelerator handle is very sensitive and you can speed up unexpectedly and crash / fall. Any suggestion? Regards

Welcome to the forum, I think you are the first person I have seen on here from South America.

Regarding your difficulty with the throttle in confined spaces, try touching the back brake to prevent any sudden acceleration !
