    A really good ride

    Hi All

    Just been for a great ride and I'm buzzing so excuse the enthusiasm.  The sun was shining, the bike was going so well, the roads were quite, all the slow cars were met on the straights and dispatched with ease, the new Givi Airflow and additional chinese deflector were working fantastically and being on the Crosstourer was just about the best place in the world.  And I'm approaching the 5 year anniversary of buying her.

    She's past 43000 miles now but I can't tell any difference to when I got her.  I just wish that petrol was cheaper as riding like I did today is not good for economy.

    I hope you all have a good ride today too!

    John

    Fair play Noddy,
    It must be the vitamin D from the recent sun that helped you enjoy the spin.
    I have the CT almost 10 years and still get the same buzz from dispatching cars ( that are probably doing the speed limit, but from the seat of a Ct , appear to be doddering)

    Glad to hear that our rides stay fresh after those miles/kms.  I think I need one of those deflectors on my 2016 to finish off the slight buffeting that remains.  Cheers from California!

    I just put a CalSci XL screen on my 2016. Problem solved.

    Stay safe! Cheers from Texas
