    Hello everyone,
    Tazmool here.

    I just purchased a used VFR1200X crosstourer in Toronto Ontario Canada.  These bikes are quite rare here, and a used one is almost like a unicorn.  The one I found has less than 600km on it, so I'll have to go through the break in procedure, 1st service etc.
    I'm looking forward to riding in the spring, but for now I'll have to wait for weather to get better just to get the new lady home from the dealer floor.

    This bike is quite the departure for me, my last bike being a Suzuki B-King.  The dct tranny alone will take some time to get used to, but it should be a fun time in the spring.

    Looking forward to many miles, smiles, learning stuff about the bike here, and perhaps eventually contributing.

     :400: aboard Tazmool, that colour scheme looks great,really suits the bike.
    Ride safe and enjoy the miles you put on in the spring., as Big Bob said, pity about the season we are just going into.

    The DCT should only  take a few hundred yards to get used to that's all it took me. My big problem is having traded my DCT for a ZZR1400 I keep trying to put the bike in neutral with my right thumb and I've had the bike for a month
