    Hello

    I am a new member, although have been lurking in the background, but have had my Crosstourer since later summer 2017.  I test rode a GS and Explorer and settled for the Crosstourer.  I upgraded from a CBF1000 as the Crosstourer is more suited to 2 up touring and am happy with my choice after two short trips to Belgium and Normandy.  But it is a beast to handle when parking especially on uneven ground.  I have had a few scary moments so it is only a matter of time until the inevitable happens.  The Crosstourer makes the CBF seem tiny now although the CBF is a great bike which I have owned for over 10 years and still own.


    Cheers

     always thought my XJR was a big heavy bike, feels like a BMX compared to the CT now. :038:

    Welcome from another CT owner in East Yorkshire.  Perhaps we'll meet up at Seaways, Fridaythorpe some time! Martin
    Just love my HONDA Crosstourer dct, and my manual TDM900.

     :400: aboard Kingstonr, ride safe and enjoy the ride.  :028: :028:  :821:
    Thought the same about the Blackbird being heavy until i rode the CT for a while then had to move the Blackbird in the garage and it felt like a light weight. ha.

    ride safe all.
    keep it shiny side up !!!
