It’s good to have another new Crosstourer join the forum. I bought my 2017 VFR 1200X DCT earlier this year and I’m beginning the farkling process. Hepco and Becker crash bars added last month, and there’s a Hepco and Becker Lock-it side case pannier rack in the mail. Next purchase is the Mosko Moto 35L Backcountry panniers. I’ll be interested in reading what manufacturers you purchase from when you begin to outfit your VFR.
By the way, red Crosstourers are the most fun.
