    Saying Hi.

    Just a short note to say hello to all as I'm a new member here.
    I recently bought a 2017 Crosstourer 1200x DCT.
    Before that I was riding a Yamaha FJR 1300 which I have to say I loved and which I owned for a good few years. Unfortunately due to a problem with my left foot I decided that I needed to swop my bike and having had my eye on the Crosstourer for a couple of years I decided to start looking for one.
    Eventually I found one that I liked and could afford and was in good condition. The milage was 28000 but that didn't really faze me as I know how well made and reliable they are (generally!) and I intend to do most of the maintenance on it. I usually do most of what needs to be done but have always tried to get hold of a factory service manual.
    So far I've drawn a blank with that but I'm sure someone will respond to my question as to where to source one when I put my question in the servicing and maintenance section on the forum.
    Here's to many miles and years of owning my Crosstourer. Cheers.

    Ah, right sort of Easting, just the wrong Northing for me here in Suffolk!
    Mind, I did used to work in Bishop, but that was along time ago!

    Try David Silvers or Fowlers for the manual, I've bought them from there before.

    I know Bishop well enough although I'm over near the coast and north of Peterlee.

    Thanks Beer Belly, I'll give David Silvers a call tomorrow. I did speak to Fowlers (I've dealt with them before and they're very helpful) and they said that the latest version they could find is 2014. I imagine a lot of the manual will apply to newer bikes too and that perhaps the only differences might be in the electronics which is something I generally keep well away from!
