    Hi de hi folks -- just taken delivery of a 2016 Crossrunner with 5k mls on it  which has replaced the Africa Twin -- hoping to learn lots from this forum --- on a personal note I'm a grumpy old Yorky that's decided to stick to tarmac but like the upright riding position of big trailies and needed something a bit more road orientated, first impressions are my legs are a bit more cramped  than on the CRF and the clutch is much heavier than the big twin  -- but it's a lovely motor . :158:

    Great looking CR, Varonda. May I suggest a fender extender to help keep some crud off the front of the bike, and a rear hugger if one is not fitted.

    Very nice.

    I think the white was the best looking, shame they dropped the colour in the later models.  :012:
