900 miles in first 3 days
on: October 20, 2015, 10:03:39 PM
Picked up my Crosstourer at the weekend and just kept going. 3 days and 900 miles in I love it. Went to Galway 2up with make shift luggage and I'm still smiling. Wrecked the rear tyre already though.

Great stuff DJ, that's the sort of thing the CT excels at.

You're just like Mad Phil then, "I just forgot to stop."  :008: Ledge. :037:

If the standard tyres are Scorpions, I agree they are trashed quicker than any tyre on any bike I have owned. A set of Roadsmarts on my GSX1400 came close but I can put that down to there being so much grip compared to what I was used to I cut about like an idiot!

 I swapped to Anakee3's on the CT which have given me a more normal mileage on the rear you will be happy to hear!

Happy travels.

Great to hear DJ  :028:

Over 3 years ago I got my DCT on a Friday night and set off for Scotland @ 7am Saturday............took it for the 1st service the following Saturday with 2150 miles on the clock

They had to wash it 3 times before they could do the service  :305:

That's what you call a proper "shake down" run, love it.
