Hello from Bolton
on: January 20, 2020, 08:09:02 PM
Hello everyone. Having been commuting for the last 12 months on a 2018 NC750X, which I must say I loved. I got a call from Northwest Honda in Wigan to ask if I would like to take a Crossrunner for a test drive. I have watched TMF do a review so took up their offer. WOW what a machine. 2 days later and a lot of grovelling to my wife a deal with my NC done and the Matte Black and Grey 2019 Crossrunner was ordered. I took delivery 25th of November and have used it to commute in all this bad weather and regular washes and XCP are keeping it looking great.  :001: :152: I have recently added radiator and oil cooler guards from Evotech, Honda hugger, fender extenda and Acerbis handguards. Centre stand done with the deal. Having ridden all manner of bikes I can honestly say this is my favourite.

Hi and welcome.  :031:
1 VFR simply isnt enough! Crossrunner for commuting, VFR1200F for summer fun.

Welcome to the forums - the TMF video was the one which clued me in to Crossrunners too. Honda should give him commission.

Hi,
I currently commute on a NC750X DCT and agree it is a great bike. However, I have been looking at chancing to a crossrunner for a while and there seem to be some reasonable deals out there at the moment.

Have you test ridden one?

I suspect that might make the decision for you!  :016: :152:

I totally agree. Once you ride away on the CR you realise how pleasant and amenable biking can be. Immediately you think "this is a really nice place to be" and "I could sit here all day and not feel tired or irritated". No more wrist ache, no more neck ache, engineering confidence, the list goes on. Test ride one soon, especially if deals are around. The CR is a best-kept secret for long-term bike ownership and enjoyment and needs barely any customisation to meet your needs. Its a great bike straight out of the box.
Who in their right mind would design a vehicle that falls over when it stops?
