Hi everyone

Coming to you from Canberra, Australia, I am new to the Crosstourer family having recently purchased a beautiful, second hand, 2014 VFR1200X.     Looking forward to connecting with other CT riders locally, around Australia and the world.  Previously on sports bikes so already enjoying the wonderful riding position of the CT.

Safe and happy riding!

Hi and welcome from Ireland.

Seems the DCT version was never sold in OZ.

Yes the DCT was never sold in Australia ( no idea why).   There may be a very small number floating around which were imported by individuals.  Manual is a treat though.
