    Hello from France

    After a ST1300 and GL1800 I decided to return at my first loves.
    In fact I loved my ST1300, but this weigth with hight center of gravity was a problem for me. After I bought my GL1800 I discovered an other univers between car and motorbike.
    In Europe the roads are often with hole and the suspensions of the Goldwing aren't ideal for it.
    I choiced VFR1200X Crosstourer (red and black) because the position of the driver is confortable for me and my wife and this bike is less heavy that my GL1800.
    And top of that I have a feeling more in relation with my phylosophy when I ride it.
    Of course I will have need of your help for find the best accessoiries and some advice for understand this bike and especially about the DCT gearbox.
    My first accessoiries ares :
    top case Shad SH58X
    suitcase Shad SH35 carbon
    Crash bar Hepcko Becker black
    Motor cradle Hepcko Becker
    heated handles

    Best regards

    Hey JC.  I am a new owner also.  Welcome to the forum.  The folks here seem to be very welcoming and helpful. I bought the VFR1200X for many of the same reasons as you.  Enjoy the bike and ride safely!

    Bienvenue et bonjour  :400:

    I would add a fender extender at the front and some sort of duck-tail at the back - as others have said, she can be a dirty girl in the rain.

    Welcome jclaudej  from another new owner.

    I spend a lot of my time in France mainly in the Deux-Sevres & Vendee regions and hope to be using my CT for some of these trips when it arrives.
