    I just bought my Crosstourer a couple of weeks ago and waiting for the winter to pass. I have been riding bikes since I was 10 starting with a Honda SL70 and have had odd mixtures of bikes since. I currently have a BMW GS1150, a BMW R1150T, 1977 Goldwing and a 1983 Honda XR500. I really like doing long crosscountry trips on my BMWs but as a long time Honda fan I've been waiting for the Crosstourer to come to the US as a smoother, cheaper, and more powerful alternative to the boxer motors! I will be spending the next month or two adding accessories like heated grips, center stand, crash bars, things that would have come with a BMW but I am still way ahead costwise!

    PS: The Youtube videos from Big Bike Adventures helped convince me that these bikes are more off-roady then Honda is making them out to be. Honda should pay him some royalties!

    Welcome, and :047: to Big Bike Adventures!    Those videos and some off-pavement testing of my wife's Nc700x DCT pushed me over the hump as well.

    No regrets at all,
