    Hello from Cambridgeshire

    Been lurking for a few days but picked up my 2017 Crosstourer Highlander today - joins my 2010 Moto Guzzi California Vintage and 2011 Triumph Rocket III Touring (R3T_Rider)!.

    Looking to spend a couple of months in Europe this year and decided I needed something with a bit more agility and flexibility than the Rocket; had to be a "shaftie".  Tried the Moto Guzzi V85TT and the Crosstourer - the Crosstourer won as this one has been lowered (I am only 5'8") and just felt more planted on the road than the V85 (though that is a nice bike and, if the Crosstourer had not been lowered it would have been a closer call).

    I note a few comments about the screen - I have to say that I find the stock screen on the Highlander works fine for me.

    So, hello one and all and I look forward to learning more about the bike (already used the forum to learn how to dismount the topbox!).

    Not taken any pics of the Crosstourer yet so one each of the Rocket and CaliVin.

    Keep it shiny side up.

    Plenty of chrome to polish there! Handsome bikes.

    Congrats on your new addition. The CT is surprisingly nimble for such a heavy bike.
