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.
