    Hi Guys and Girls, picked up my Crosstourer a few weeks ago now, totally different to my last bike a Cruiser!
    I live in Oxfordshire, England and have the pleasure of living within easy distance of the Cotswolds (lovely scenic routes). Both my partner and me are new to the world of biking but love every minute we've spent out and around rain or shine.
    I will endeavour to hopefully not bore all the veterans with my ups and downs and probably stupid questions! Even at my age I believe you can never stop learning.  :027: :031:

    Welcome Dopeydiy

    New CT owner myself glad to here you & partner are loving it.

    You live in a good part of the country though traffic especially in tourist season is a bit of a ball ache.

    I visit Witney every 4/6 weeks to see family so will keep my eyes open for another CT (i love shopping in Burford) & usually manage a case of hobgoblin in the case on my return

     Hi is there a way of changing the display from Litres per km to miles per gallon?
    On a less serious note, tried to start bike today, nothing, lights and everything else working wouldn't turn over :084:. Off to the shed battery charger, jump leads spare battery..... still nothing! :148:
    Stood pondering when to call garage :034:, then out of the blue an idea came into my head, check the BIG RED kill switch button :430:. Fired up straight away  :008:

     :400: Dopeydiy.

    I think 16 onwards CTs can display MPG, looking at your picture I think yours is an earlier bike, no can do I’m afraid. I’ve had a 13 and 15 and couldn’t.

    Hi Dopeydiy.
    I had a 2013 Highlander which I was able to change between mph and kph, but as far as I can remember it always registered the fuel in litres.
