    Hi All,

    Im Mitch from Sydney, I just put down a deposit on a Crossrunner, hopefully picking it up on Thursday.  :007:

    Its my first grown up bike, Ive been riding around on an old beat up ZZR250 for the last couple of years, just to get me from my L plates to my full license.

    I really wasnt expecting to love the crossrunner as much as I did when i test rode one, but compared to the other bikes I took out ( V-strom 650 & Versys 1000 ) there was no comparison, the crossrunner just felt like the bike for me.

    Looking forward to being a part of this forum.

    I`ll post up pics when I pick up the beast!

    Hi Mitch Welcome to the forum. I think that you have made a good choice but then of course I'm biased. Enjoy your new bike and let us all know how you get on with it

    I don't know how that screen provides so much protection, but for it does!
    Must be cause I'm vertically challenged :028:

    What's the orange thing on the fork?

    Is it a reflector?  Something specific to the Australian regs?
