Greetings from the North
« on: October 06, 2011, 08:26:51 AM »
Greetings. My crossrunner gets its 600 mile service next week. Am using it in all weather, including the hooligan of a hurricane over the last few days...its my main means of transport. All going well so far...the seat keeps coming unclipped at the front. Its currently amazingly dirty covered with pre-digested animal matter. I am testing the anti-corrosive properties to the full.

Hi Rocker66 - glad you found us OK. :028:
Keep meaning to trawl a few sites to find owners who might not know about this site and invite them on.

Trying not to let football take over but..Come on the Reds! My previous bike was a Varadero 1000 which I found too top heavy but ultra comfortable on tour. I hope the CR does the business. Like the look of the Storm hand guards. I only do 8k a year but in all weather and "oop north" (Lancashire coast) we get a lot. I live down a rough cart track and so far the CR has negotiated the potholes quite well if a little firm for my taste. Previously digested animal products abound and I suspect the hydrogen ion is already enjoying the taste of metal.

Some what disappointed over the the fuel tank range...filling up for comfort at 120 miles. My OCD tells me I am getting 40 miles per gallon, but I hope it will get better as the bike loosens up and as my confidence in the tank increases I can manage a day without a visit to a tax cow forecourt.

My dearly beloved, aka SWMBO, (you work it out) wont even try the pillion seat...she wants a GW! Did I do wrong?
