    8 Years and still loving it

    Hi All
    Bought my CT in 2012 and still loving it.
    Never been back to the Shop. Do all my own servicing and still runs like a Top.
    Dropped a few times due to occasional bouts of Ducks Disease.
    A Friend bought one but sold it after a year in preference of a BMW GS. Why???
    Rarely go to bike shop these days. They seem to have nothing that interests me.
    Also have a couple of 1100 Shadows to play with.
    Love me Hondas

    Hamish,

    I fully concur.  Strangely enough I was thinking about the same thing the other day.
    2012 DCT with 24K miles on the clock...runs like a dream...never had any issues with her...and still makes me  :001:
    I continue to look at other offerings but nothing comes close to the style, build-quality and reliability.
    Continue to enjoy...I know I will.

    Hi Hamish I too feel the same about about my 2012 VFR1200X Crosstourer absolutely love it & have also been a Honda person for some time as owned 3 Blackbirds prior to this Honda. Should try & catch up for a chat & a coffee plus a ride one day if your keen as I'm on North Side of Brissy & haven't found too many other owners of these bikes that you can  sit down & chat with. Only issue I have is not being able to get hands on a service book for this model as I also don't mind tinkering on my bikes also.

    Cheers Ken.

    Hi All,
    The way the weather is at the moment here on the Suny Coast i cant seem to pick a good day for riding the crosstourer lately, with the storms and rain around.  I think the best time for a ride is at the crack of dawn .
    Its a lot cooler...out for 2or 3 hours before the heat sets in for the day and the storms in the afternoon.
    Ive done this a number of times over the years and it gets you going for the rest of the day. :788:

    Hi Ken
    I agree. CT owners are getting scarce these days. There were a few around earlier on but seem to have disappeared. Perhaps we should get together for a drink and a chat.
    I live on the Southside so pick a place and PM me..
    Cheers

    So true. Been hissing down on the Southside since Friday.
