    Hello from Manchester

    Hi all,

    Just picked up my 2019 Crossrunner on Saturday. New to Hondas (had a Kwak and a Triumph previously) but I'm impressed already with this bike!

    Cheers

    Rob

    Hi Rob, welcome to the site.

    Any pics of your bike?

    What made you jump from Kwak/Triumph? Most folk seem to discount he 800X, until they ride and own one that is!
    98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles, 08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles, 15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (all sold)
    14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
    18 VFR800X - 16,000 miles
    01 VFR800 Fi-1 - 9000 miles

    Cheers everyone for the warm welcome! Yep got it from Hunts. I've not had chance to ride it properly yet, the test ride was in sub-zero conditions and when I picked up I was very time-poor so just had to ride it home through heavy traffic (with the panniers attached which made filtering a bit more cautious than usual).

    Hopefully will get out on it this weekend though. :002:

    :062: Hi Rob, I too just recently got my 2019 CR. I'm also in Manchester (Chorlton) if you fancy meeting up for a brew. (My fourth Honda over 15 years).

    A thought just occurred; do you commute along the A34 from Upper Brook Street through to Kingsway? About the time I was getting my CR I ended up chatting with a CR rider while I was cycling (he remarked that I was managing a good speed on my pushbike). Just wondering if that was you . . . red CR I think with a topbox.
