Hello from France
on: March 07, 2013, 11:40:33 PM
Hello all,
I'm Matt, 30 years old from France.
I live just next to Geneve (Switzerland) and near french mountains... Means there are a lot of wonderfull roads here in mountains  :028:
There are few crossrunners in France... No dedicated forum in french  :006:
Maybe I will get some answers on this forum that would help me.
I used to have a Kawasaki ER6F (called Ninja 650 in USA) before this Honda.
Mine is red. Got an Ixil Hyperlow exhaust on it, a Bagster red bag on the tank and a Kappa TopCase (not really pretty but practical for all-days).
Excuse my english level... but here you don't have to suffer my french accent  :164:

See ya

Matt

Bonjour Matt  :400:

Glad to have you on board! Myself and GTB will be at Lake Geneva in May as part of a week long tour through mainly France but also taking in Switzerland, Belgium and Luxembourg!! Who knows we might see you there.

Hi Matt and welcome.

Bienvenue sur le forum crossrunner. (I have to confess I got that from the Google Translate website!!).

Don't worry about your English. It will be better than most of us on here.

I have toured once near to Geneva - around Annecy and Thonon les Bains. a great biking area.

I noticed the comment from Slidy. 12 countries in 14 days sounds fun. The Crossrunner is made for it.

Regards

Hello,
thanks for your replies !
Sure the region is a nice place to ride and to live.
I used to live in Annecy but now I'm near the Leman's lake.
Sure we have a lot of nice roads here, would be happy to see some XRunners here, I feel so alone  :190:
Most of people in France ride Z750 or Street Triple  :164:

Hi Matt,

I am ex crossrunner owner and last May I rode through Annecy and stayed in a small town called Ugine, Near Albertville. We spent a day riding round Mt Blanc region..but many passes still closed due to snow. We headed south to Embrun and on down the Route Napoleon the next day. Part of a great trip and the Crossrunner was perfect for the mountain roads.

Nice Trip !
My Grand parents live near Embrun, in Barcelonnette, a lot of passes there too... and the highest road in Europe to go to Nice via the "col de la Bonnette" : 2802m ! Opened at the beginning of May in general.
