Hello from Australia
on: April 02, 2013, 01:46:31 PM
Hello one and all,

my name is Neil, and I'm from Wagga Wagga, Australia. I've had my Crossrunner now for 14 months, and it is the best bike I have owned. I am 52, and ride my bike daily, and do some touring to Sydney and Wollongong (4-5 hours each way), and find the bike comfortable, reliable, but above all, fun to ride.

Was told my bike cannot take a centre stand due to the standard exhaust configuration, but having browsed your forums, I know now that further inquiries will need to be made!

Cheers mates,
Neil.  :031:

A center stand is available from honda and sw motech.
Also the stand off a vfr800f vtec fits.  You may find one on fleabay.  You would want the full stand fitment off the 800f vtec vfr.
The only mod is a rubber carpet door stop to stop the stand hitting the exhaust.

Hi Neil. Welcome to the forum. I've had a honda centre stand on mine for 18 months. No problem at all.

Just looked on my atlas at the ride from Wagga Wagga to Sydney. Looks fantastic. especially for us Brits suffering protracted bitterly cold weather.
