Newbie says Hi
on: June 24, 2019, 02:18:18 PM
Hi Guys and Gals
I will take delivery of a 2016 CR next week, so I have joined the forum for all the usual reasons.
I have ridden bikes since my teens in the 1960's and have had such things as AJS Model 14, Velocette Venom 500, Norton Commando 850, Moto Guzzi V50, Yamaha MT-07 and Kawasaki Z900.
I am getting on a bit but I still like riding fast and smooth. However, I can no longer tolerate head-down, lean forward stances. Hence I have now changed to the more upright relaxed riding position of the VFR800 Crossrunner.
I have been an active contributor on the MT-07 and Z900 forums and look forward to getting up to speed with CR postings, making some of my own when I feel I can contribute something.
Best wishes to all
Regards
Scimitar   :031:
