Hello from the Welsh borders.
on: August 15, 2018, 04:19:49 PM
Hi. I recently bought a 2013 Crossrunner. Coming from a low reving  BMW, it took me a few rides to dial myself into the Crossrunner but now we’ve gelled, I think it’s one of the finest bikes I’ve ever thrown a leg over. I had to change the screen because the one it came with was huge, ugly and sent all the turbulence and noise onto the top of my helmet. Fitted a powerbronze touring screen and my bike is about as perfect for me as I could ever have hoped for. Very happy right now, catch you on the forum, cheers.

There are some great roads here for sure. Better when the holiday traffic has died down a bit though 😉
