    Longdude from Devon has just rocked up !

    Hi all
    I've been lurking in the background, genning up on the CT. As a small amount of cash is heading my way (at last) I will soon be able to buy a used Cross Tourer. So I've given up lurking.
    I've been without two wheels for 18 months, due to funding a camper van conversion by selling my last bike.
    Last few bikes, in order :
    Yam XT660Z tenere
    BMW R1100GS
    Yam  XT1200Z Super Ten
    Triumph Tiger 955i
    KTM 950 ADV
    3 x KTM 400 EXC's
    3 x XR650R
    Honda XR600R
    Suzuki DR800 single
    Yam XTZ750 Super Ten.............
    and god knows how many before my 10 year break.

    After a test ride on a CT manual and a brand new Suzuki DL1000 VStrom,  I've decided on the Honda. I did like the Vstrom but its not quite up to the CT's power etc. So, hopefully,  I'll have a bike within a month or two.

    That's it I guess.
    Cheers
    Longdude.

     :400: aboard Longdude, ride safe and enjoy the ride.  :028: :031:
    Their have been a couple of CTs on here for sale recently, and most of them are cherished by the owner and sound buys.
    Good luck with the search and enjoy your bike when it rocks up.   :305: :305: :305:  :031: :028:
    keep it shiny side up !!!

    Don’t know if it’s of any use to you Longdude but my local Honda dealers have a few CT’s for sale at present.

    Thanks all, most welcoming.

    I've been in contact with a forum member on this site and there may be a deal to be done for a CT

    Thanks also to Dave56, I'll take a look at your link.

    Muchas gracias.
