Fancy that!
Not exactly popular sellers are they (honestly don't know why).
Is that the local branch of the Honda Owners Club then?

Unfortunately I never made it to the show, good turn out?

Hi Phil
I reckon Honda confused buyers with Adventure styling on what is basically a touring bike with gravel road ability (motorcycling's equivalent of my Nissan Xtrail...maybe).
I suppose not 'hard core' is a mistake in what is largely a wank driven market. Two of my mates spent twice as much to have the KTM 1190 Adventure...how often do they pass me? Almost never...unless in a straight line.
Also, the introductory pricing of the Crossrunner was a bit of an ask given the age of the engine/chassis package.
Still, I gotta say I can't stay of mine. Did a 350km loop yesterday and got off feeling fresh.
cheers
Jimbo
