Very nice.

I think the white was the best looking, shame they dropped the colour in the later models.  :012:

Great looking CR, Varonda. May I suggest a fender extender to help keep some crud off the front of the bike, and a rear hugger if one is not fitted.

Hi de hi folks -- just taken delivery of a 2016 Crossrunner with 5k mls on it  which has replaced the Africa Twin -- hoping to learn lots from this forum --- on a personal note I'm a grumpy old Yorky that's decided to stick to tarmac but like the upright riding position of big trailies and needed something a bit more road orientated, first impressions are my legs are a bit more cramped  than on the CRF and the clutch is much heavier than the big twin  -- but it's a lovely motor . :158:

Ended up buying this from Nippy normans:



Fits neatly under the seat - just need to move the toolkit in front of the compressor.

Update: having ridden in the cold and wet, I can confirm that for me (5'10 slim build), these wind deflectors really make a big difference and reduce significantly the amount of air that gets to my torso. I've also fitted a flip visor to the top of my powerbronze screen, which, once I found the correct set up enabled visor-up riding at 80mph and much less wind noise. There's a bloke on Youtube who did a video about it:



and here's the link to buy:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07M8ZZ12R/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=B07M8ZZ12R&linkCode=as2&tag=helmethead-21&linkId=1a5934f5b83cdc64358d253bcf91511a

It's £24, and comes from China. Delivery was supposed to be three weeks but only took 10 days. Proper ones are £100, so I thought it's worth a punt and when/if it breaks I'll get a posh one. Quite fiddly to fit, adjusting is a bit of a pain in the arse and can't safely be done on the move, but not that big a deal as now set, I leave it as it is and only adjust the height of the screen. Lifts the top of my bubble of stillness higher, which I hope will make a big difference this winter.

I've found the Givi guards to be effective and they mount securely to the bars.

Same with my Barkbusters.
