First Test Reports
« on: February 02, 2012, 11:05:44 PM »
The official launch appears to be in a couple of weeks time.

As a guide to 'reality' I always like to read Kevin Ash's report first, before other journalists.

Kevin is a long-time respected reporter for MCN, UK and Australian bike magazines and the London newspaper The Telegraph too. He will be at the launch and hopes to put his report up on his web site (link below) about Feb 17th.

Kevin has been doing the job a very long time, is quite technical and he will give a very realistic review IMHO. I.e. Most journo's go overboard a bit with praise at a launch (too much sunshine and champagne going to their heads!) and then calm themselves somewhat post launch and then start writing 'real-world' reports of a bike.

Kevin does tend to be very sober in his reporting, not getting too carried away with glamour of launches. If the CrossTourer is not very good then he'll tell you in no uncertain terms. But of course, we all hope his and other journalist reports are favourable!

Anyway if you want to read his report you'll be able to on his site. And if you want to pose any questions to him to answer either in his report or post launch in the CrossTourer thread then naturally you can register on his site and ask him whatever questions you wish.
