Another G'day from Down Under!
on: April 27, 2016, 07:51:01 AM
Hi All
After lurking for quite a while I am finally joining the Crossrunner club. Did a deal on a new one today that has been sitting in the local dealer for quite a while. Don't seem to be a lot of interest in them in Oz - haven't seen one on local roads.
Anyway, after a long riding history of BMWs, a few Ducatis and a few VFRs I'm still very excited about picking the bike up on Saturday morning!
Cheers!  :031:

Not seen any of the 2015+ model over here either.. the mark I isn't an unusual sight though, but even then not all that many. Enjoy the exclusivity!  :062:

Great colour mate, will you get the top box to match the panniers?

Hi Robert,
almost same story as yours... picked up the same bike yesterday, same colour (looks incredible), same matching panniers.  :001:
Mine was located near Gosford at a BMW dealer and had been hiding among the BMW's for quite a while. I was sooo close to choosing a BMWF800GT though, but the Honda won me over in the end as a much more value for money bike. Note - this is only my personal opinion. :164:
Cheers Fred.  :158:
