"The pull from tickover now is BANG-instant. Stand up on the pegs and tweak the throttle open and you can barely hold on, it’s so strong from 1, 2, 3,000RPM. Just the job."

Mark said: "Think I’ve just found the bike I want to run for the year but, having said that,  I am 46." Well I just happen to be 46 today. Oh dear!  :001:

I was expecting it to be good, and it would seem it is.  :152:

Now I feel worse  :003:  because it is so long before she arrives, but more excited at the same time.  :046:

I don't think I have ever been so keen on a bike before. I must have some kind of V-FeveR  :431: bad joke  :158:

That engine setup IS what is most fascinating me NOW - it did really overtop all my expectations  :029: ... plus the design, plus the shaft drive, plus the fact that it's a high quality built HONDA bike!

I been on http://www.swiss-moto.ch/ bike show yesterday. Sat on all the competitors, BMW, Multistrada, Versys, Tenere ... sooooooo of course i liked Crosstourer best... course I know the limitations, the negative sides on it .. too. But HEY every bike got some "negative" sides: personally i didn't like the chain drive on Multistrada, Triumph just looks "ugly", KTM has no appeal to me, did i mention i dont like BMW air cooled flat engine either :084:

So everbody to its own.

So, ....  that V-4 concept of Honda CrossTourer really blows my mind  :029: soon the waiting will be over  :305:

If you’ve ordered a Crosstourer with a manual gearbox feel free to kick yourself now…

So I won't have to kick myself then.  :002:  Sounds like he likes the DCT.
