    As I'm soon to be an owner of a Crosstourer I figured I'd get my but in gear and join this forum.

    I've checked out the Africa Twin and it just didn't fit.  The Crosstourer is what I hope fills the need best.  So.. I'm selling my 2 year old Suzuki '15 WeeXT as it just hasn't got the power or comfort I want for long distance riding.  My bike prior to the Suzuki was a Honda ST1300 and I loved the smooth power and comfortable ride.  I did 70K miles during the 4 years I owned it and visited every state in the contiguous 48.  But any dirt road was a horror and I needed something a bit more comfortable in that environment.   Thus the WeeXT.  Didn't work out.  Great bike though!

    I'm already enjoying the worldly viewpoint this forum presents!

    Now.... I need to go find a Crosstourer to call my own!

    Welcome and also went from a wee to the crosstourer, even spent quality time on an ST1300 a d the VFRX instantly reminded me of that bike on the first test ride.  You will love it and its a blast on dirt roads.

    Welcome. Love using LV as a base to tour around the South West. My favourite part of the world. Lucky you.  I had a ST1300 and A  1200GSA. The Crosstourer is the best of both worlds.
