    Newbie from Worcestershire UK says hi...

    Hi there
    I'm pleased to be here and pleased to be three weeks into what I think will be an enjoyable ownership experience of a 2016 manual Crosstourer Highlander.  I came to the CR changing from an Africa Twin DCT that I had had from new.  I liked the AT but missed road tyres/suspension and after a quick whiz out on a CR I'm sold!  Great turn in, great brakes, great suspension, and, great engine.  And no chain!
    DCT is good for touring , not so for making 'progress' on some of the bumpy twisty we have near me.

    Welcome to the forum and congrats!  Unbeknownst to Yasko, I began using his riding strategy on the DCT, switching to manual on the more technical roads.   Not that it matters as you have a MT...just a point of.interest to everyone here in the forum, potential owners, etc.
