I have decided to take the King's shilling and join your disparate group.
I've had three test rides on Crosstourers, two manual and one DCT and am thinking it would be a good fit for me as a sports tourer.
I've been riding for 43 years and had 44 bikes, so this could be Honda number 9. The other contender for my cash would be a 1290 KTM SA which is a fair bit more and chain drive, but has a huge tank range, is lighter and has a cruise control which works a lot better than that fitted to my Tiger Explorer. But I think I'll wait till KTM get the early niggles out.
