Hi Everyone.  Got my 2011 Crossrunner a couple of months back on a great deal as a demo bike from Elliott Bros of Bendigo.  I have taken her out a few times but now the Spring has arrived in Australia, I am really looking forward to getting out a bit more for those big country rides.  For me this bike is the perfect mix of commuter, sports bike and what I am most keen as a tourer. Early days but planning to go touring Tasmania next year.  Thus far, I have upgraded the windscreen with an aftermarket MRA high screen with wind deflector (working well) and got a great deal on some new Kappa panniers on ebay. I look forward to sharing info and finding things out from the more learned riders in the forum.  On that note, if you are in Australia, I just halved the cost of my comprehensive insurance moving from Swann to Youi, so definitely worth checking out. Regards.
