Anticipating first encounter
on: October 29, 2015, 11:23:20 PM
Hey all , soupbean here from the U.S. . Well , I feel like a school boy nervously awaiting my first date with a most recent infatuation. Found out last week that the VFR 1200 X (Crosstourer) will be coming to the US early next year . Have followed and lusted after this bike since it was released in 2012 " NOT FOR U.S. SALE ". Have spent many hours replaying internet videos hopelessly daydreaming and fantasizing that this Crosstourer would some day , some how find a loving home in my garage. And now my dream is one giant step closer to reality. Currently I own a 2010 NT 700v (Deauville) and 2010 VFR 1200f DCT . Love the NT , a GREAT all around motorcycle. The VFR is a very premium type motorcycle. It excels and exacutes the purpose for which it was designed very well. Great engine, great brakes , great handling for a bike of its weight. Would love to have this bike but with better wind and weather protection, more forgiving and comfortable riding position, and suspension that doesn't loosen fillings in my teeth on all but perfectly smooth roads.  Hence my current pitiful infatuation with the Honda Crosstourer. Don't ask me how I know. Call it love at first sight . I only know that the Crosstourer and I were meant to be .......
