First ride report.
on: September 26, 2015, 09:08:11 PM
Picked up my new bike today,it's my first Honda in nearly 40 yrs of riding so I was interested to see how it compared to my previous shaftie the yam super tenere,it feels a lot more heavier than the yam even though there is only 14kgs between them but this makes the crosstourer very sure footed and you soon get used to the weight and it isn't an issue,the only thing that the yam is light years ahead of the Honda is the shaft,on the ct its very heavy,clunky and antiquated but you can live with it as the ct is the most comfortable bike I have ever had and because of that fact I love it,i am at a certain stage of decrepidness that any bike ive had enough after 70mls and have to get off and straighten up/walk about but today I went the long way home and after stopping for petrol I did 215mls in 1 go and could have carried on,brilliant so my only issue is the screen,its too short makes the wind go in the helmet and as ive never wore earplugs will have to get another screen apart from that very pleased and cant wait to do some more miles tomorrow.
