    Waiting for 2020 CR

    Hi.
     After 2 years riding -08 Varadero I started looking for  a newer  an d lighter bike.
    Suddenly a 2020 CR appered in my search and after some negotitions with the dealer (and my wife) I became the owner of a red CR.
    I have not seen the bike in real yet, i have to wait until midt january .
    I have studied the CR by reading tests and reviews .
    I live in the western part of Norway and i think i will enjoy riding my CR at these winding roads .

     :400: you are in the right place here.
    I have found valuable info from the guys on here and love my 2019 CR.
    Just a great all round bike, and nothing to touch it at the price. Enjoy and safe riding your new baby !

    Hello and welcome to the forum Askild !

    I have been to Norway a couple of times on my CR and have to admit you really lucked out on the location.
    A word of caution though. When I had my CR new I had the serious problem that I did not feel or realize how fast I was are going. I thoguht I was gently gliding along and suddenly all the turns were a bit harder to corner than normal turns out I was going a solid 130kph. I know about the fines in Norway so check your speed regulary !
