Greetings from sunny Southsea
on: September 22, 2012, 10:54:44 PM
Just collected my new pearl white Crossrunner yesterday and discovered this forum yesterday evening.

The bike is completely standard, though I have a Hepco & Becker main stand, luggage rack and pannier rails on order.

I've been riding all day and come to the conclusion that an aftermarket can is a must! It's difficult to run an engine in properly when you can't hear what's going on  :006:  Having looked around and picked up on a few threads here, the Beowulf Warrior in black stainless is the prime candidate.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

Hello and  :400: to the forum  :031:. Great choice of exhaust the warrior if it's the one on ebay your looking at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-VFR800-CROSS-RUNNER-2011-Beowulf-Silencer-Link-/370622183755?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item564acdb94b#ht_1115wt_1045  .thats a pic of my bike. I tried the ixil first the wifey got it for me but i preferred the warrior after trying them both. Baffle in or baffle out it sounds awesome.  A lot more pics here https://www.honda-crossrunner.com/index.php?topic=269.msg2096#msg2096

Hi Lenny,
I tried placing an order on their website, but it demanded I login. What it didn't do was explain how I register!  :006:
Rather than faff about I bought on eBay as it was the model I wanted anyway. I don't want loud, I just want audible!
Could be a busy week in the garage if the can, main stand, luggage and pannier rails all arrive before the weekend!  :047:
