Hi from Harrow London Thanks for the add. Just bought a 2016 crossrunner after owning a 5th gen for a few years and I have to say that engine just gets better .

Have you bought for pleasure or as a workhorse?

Bought just for running about and the odd tour here and there. Need to get the bigger screen for the long hauls and do a few tweeks here and there but on the whole ....what a crackin machine

One small thing ...does anybody else get a really sore arse after about an hour and a half ???

The old bum ache thing is really weird isn't it. I remember in ye old days on a long day abroad I swapped my vfr with a mate who had a sprint st.
When we changed back after 20 mins we both said in unison 'l'd happily take the seat from yours and stick it on my bike'.
Conversely just done a trip to the Vosges and can honestly say I didn't get a twinge on 4 long days whereas someone else could've been in agony. I guess I'm lucky to have found the right seat purely be chance.
I think there's loads of stuff about seats on the forum ranging from gel inserts to top selleries from France- worth doing a search.

I was going to the soggy moggy rally near Cambridge but had to show a mate in his car where it was .So on a Friday afternoon  I had to sit in bumper to bumper traffic for 3 1/2 hrs and by the time I got to the site I could barely walk . my arse was killin. I  have ridden my 5th gen across Belgium and france and had no problem ?  Off on a Scottish run on the 5th oct  so wondering whether to buy an inflatable rubber ring lol
