    Hello!

    Hello everyone. I just bought a used 2012 Crosstourer with 108k kilometers on the clock. Coming from riding Harley Davidsons for the past 15 years, I now recall how those antiquated two wheels are "all show and no go". It's nice to be back on an efficient machine! I hail from a small Singapore, where half the time it is raining. And the other half, too sweltering to even ride a bicycle.

    Welcome & congratulations!  So do you ride no matter what in sinapore then? Rain or shine, hot or cold? 

    You are really going to enioy the bike. Perhaps one of the most underrated machines ever.

    I try to ride but avoid rain if I can. The tropical storms lately are really quite long lasting and intense. I haven't found any rain gear that does not leak, and I always end up with a wet bottom!

    Talking about leaks - after 2 week of ownership, the left front fork is now leaking...

    Hello fabianrk,

    Before doing anything rash, you might like to try a Seal Mate or Sealbuddy.

    Google them, useful to have in your toolkit anyway !

    Bye for now.

    Wack

    New member saying hello.  New owner of a 2017 VFR1200X.  Bought the bike brand new two weeks ago from the dealership, left over model.  Just finished the break in period getting ready for first service.  Love it so far, though the sensitive/twitchy throttle is annoying.  Really looking forward to putting on some miles and tours.

    Welcome Scott.  Agreed on the throttle.  There are some easy steps to mitigate.  Anyhow, enioy the bike...it really is one of the best.
