    Hello from Ayrshire

    Hello all, i've had my 2011 xrunner for couple years now and loving it. I had a vtec for 8years (after various hondas,yamahas,suzukis and a guzzi) and started to find it a bit uncomfortable on long runs (even with bar risers and sargent seat) so changed it for a bmw rt which was a great bike but boring and with issues with abs. I missed the v4 so found a low mileage mk1 and not looked back.I'll post pics soon.Cheers   :031:

    Welcome, I stay in Falkirk. I had an RT for two years before I bought my 2012 crossrunner. Dared not own it outside of warranty as it had many issues during my ownership. Great bike though. However the crossrunner is super reliable and has bags of character.  :031:
