Sadly The Crosstourer Has TO Go
on: June 02, 2015, 09:16:03 AM
I have finally reluctantly had to change my crosstourer highlander d c t.  its a wonderful bike when you are thruming along without a care in the world, but and it is a helluva but,wheeling it out of the garage and puting it on the mainstand is a nightmare. Fill up with fuel and trying to get it upright off the sidestand is another great laugh for any on lookers. Before anyone replies with the question did you not try before you bought it, yes and i thought this is heavy but i will get used to it. Also having heart failure and a recent triple by- pass probably doesnt help. I am also awaiting an op for abdominal aeortic anuerism ( my nickname is lucky) anyway goodluck all you crosstourer riders. ps I am thinking of a crssrunner or yamaha   tracer. cheers

Sad to see you giving up the crosstourer, but your health comes first. Have many more miles of happy biking whatever you end up with. :028:

Yep health first of course.  The Tracer is a great looking bike as well and much lighter so not a 'downgrade' at all, just different.  Good luck

As many have already said, I'm sorry to hear you've got to let a bike you obviously like go, especially the circumstances that have forced it.
Thing is, with all that you having going on you'd only be worrying about it which isn't going to help.
There are plenty of very good bikes out there that you could enjoy without the concern over the weight.
I wish you well and hope everything gets sorted soon.

Paul
