    That's it, bike gone

    Sad to say I've sold my Crossrunner due to not being able to ride for more than 30mins due to a health problem causing too much discomfort. This means it time to hang up my helmet despite being on the road for 50 years. I'll still be lurking on the forum though. My bike has gone to somone local who has joined this group so all is not lost.  :003:

    That's a bit rubbish stubax sorry to hear that 😞. You should stay on the forum though. I'm also a member of the NC700 forum even though my last NC was about five bike's ago 😁 I'm sure your knowledge and wisdom will be valuable to all on here too 👍. Stick around

    Sorry to hear that. Couldn’t you get something lighter and smaller to still feel the wind in your hair

    That's something I'm currently debating, would be next year before I decide but would be disappointed if the problem returned  :028:
