Recently bought a 2017 Crossrunner
on: December 04, 2020, 04:26:07 PM
Hi all,

 I've recently stumbled across this forum, as I've not long taken delivery of a 2017 Crossrunner.

So far I've changed the standard 31 litre top box for the larger 45 litre one, put some hand guards on as I'm an all year rider and this will be my commuter, which has replaced a 2011 Transalp. My commute is from Bicester to Corby around 60 miles each way.

I look forward to 'meeting' some of you over the next while.

Regards

Rob

Thanks Skids,

 They are a great bike for day to day riding. Unfortunately she's a bit underdressed at the moment, as having wiring issues with OEM fog lights. I have a feeling the kit I got (cheap off ebay....lesson learnt) is for a Crosstourer and the loom isn't quite right  :087: :033:. However, I'll post a pic when she's 'fully dressed' again.
