    Will it fit

    Moving into a new house I'm wondering will a Crosstourer fit down the side alley into the back garden. Its 41 inches at its narrowest point which lasts for about 12 inches then opens up wider? How wide are the handle bars on the Crosstourer?.

    The widest spot on my 2017 US model is at the mirrors, measuring 40.5 inches as currently positioned. The hand guards are a little narrower, about 38 inches, and the bars themselves are another inch or two less than that.  I've added Givi V37 side cases which are just slightly narrower than the mirrors.  With mirrors turned in a little, you have clearance to squeeze through (very slowly and carefully). 

    But are you claustrophobic?   :001:

    Nice one :787:

    Its only the entrance to the alley that's 41 inches. Once past the first 12" or so it opens up to about 60" so their will be plenty of room.
