observation of the writer... the nc700x and crossrunner would leave it for dead.  like we didnt know that :D and likens the 12 to a pan european.

    Good read and makes me happier that I didn't wait for the Crosstourer to come out.

    I was in a Honda dealer the other day and had a sit on their demo CT. Just as the reviewer says- hard work even getting it up off side stand. Nuff for me - absolutely not a bike I would want to haul around. Pan is also a bit heavy for me I think -  sat on a shaft drive BMW RT1200 later - now that would be tempting.

    Your lucky that you could sit on the CT as I struggled to even get on it. Certainly not for me

    Hi All, booked CR in for 1st year service 14 July and ask dealer for ride out on CT so will let you know what I think, not buying just trying had a Varadero before that could be arkward at times.   :419:

    I couldn't quite get my head around Rob's selling the runner.  He said he liked it, wasn't happy with the depreciation and offers Honda introduced, then shelled out more money for a Multistrada!
