    Hello from Derby

    Hi from the East Midlands. Love the CR, bought brand new model and rate it highly. Had loads of bikes still have a few, but for me this bikes quality oozes through. It is for a modern bike made very well, top of the tree. I have had its big brother in the past with the 1200 VFR to be frank a disappointment for me, did not rate the engine as much as my 2006 VFR let alone the latest variant of this brilliant engine.

    I am lucky can call on a few different bikes but if it was down to one here it is. You can do all with this bike aprt from green laning !

    Cheers for the welcome,
    the VRF 1200 and for that matter the Crosstourer are big heavy beasts. The VFR 12 I had was like a barge in comparison with my original VFR 800 and would be eaten on most roads bar a straight blast by the later CR. The 12 was a major disappointment IMHO OK it had grunt but that was numbed by the shaft drive and the vibration and handling were not up to Honda's usual level.

     I had two Versys 1000 a MK 1 & 2 both were superior in almost every respect to the VFR 12. The 12 was not a patch on the Pan European, still have one with just over 10,000 miles on superb.

    Ok, well, we're all entitled to our opinions.

    I currently have both bikes, and I know which is the best.

    The Pan is no lightweight.....just sayin' like.  :164:
