    Bought a brand new 2017 crosstourer non dct in January.  Looking forward for temperatures to warm up for riding.

    Are there aftermarket crash bars?  Honda doesn’t have it.

    Congrats on the new bike!  Not a ton of choices for crash bars but they are out there.  Great price by the way.  I wish I would have waited a few more months.  Still no regrets on owning this bike.  Despite its weight, it is really versatile.

    Thank you.  The first thing I am gonna do is to install a center stand, then crash bars.  So Far I have ridden it only once other than the demo ride.  It’s quite powerful.  Once I start moving, I am not noticing the weight.

    Another dealer was asking for 11500 for the DCT model.  I bought the manual version for 8k.

    My model has a DCT.  The DCT is really awesome.  I know it's not for everyone and I am not knocking your choice by any means.  You really notice a difference in how you physically feel after longer rides.  But, I've ridden the manual too.  Super smooth.
