    Show us your Crosstourer

    Picked up my Highlander today and I love it. That engine is an absolute gem and has all day comfort. Really looking forward to putting the miles on her.

    I am confused in the naming of the bikes, it looks lovely but is it the 700 twin?

    700 twin. Yes. Except there's two of them. And each pair is only 600. Arranged in V formation.

    I want one!

    It's the V4 1200 from the VFR, but tuned more for tour than sport, it's a gorgeous engine, turbine smooth and a very torquey an absolute peach.

    had a sit on one at SIlverstone - great looking bike, would certainly take one over a GS (if I could afford it)

    They are still beyond my price range. Had to buy a GS instead. 5 years on a V4, love the engine.

    Tried the DCT today in horrible winds with drizzle so not the best experience. Took about 30 minutes to learn how to use the DCT effectively and decided, IMHO, it is best left in manual. At first it was no smoother than a normal manual but once I got the hang of it it was smoother than a really smooth thing, wife on the back had no idea I was changing other than the engine note. Full power up changes were amazing and so was the down changing to get the engine braking. Talking of the engine, it was fantastic, lots of power anywhere in the rev range. Kept the gearbox in manual even in town and found it a revelation, I think it is the future. The bike itself is similar to a GS in many ways but missing the nice bits like ESA, heated grips, handlebar buttons for the computer etc. Seat was crap, screen was crap (what is the touring screen like? Givi Airflow?) and the topbox looked like some sort of rent boys visiting bag, I imagine

    Anyone played with the suspension? Seemed rock hard to me and I like it set up for comfort.

    Slow speed manoeuvres, no problem, non at all, amazingly easy just cover and use the back brake.

    Then I went and tested the Aprilia Caponord, shouldn't have done that, still smiling

    I thought about one of these, then bought a Super Tenere.
    I hope it's as good as it looks, keep us informed !

    Currently on 450 miles and absolutely loving everything about the Crosstourer, the comfort, handling and oh boy that engine, it's a complete gem and I can't wait for it to be bedded in.
    I have to say Kneeslider, although I enjoyed the S10 the smile on my face after riding the Crosstourer is far wider and lasts a lot longer.
    The build quality is first class, everything just looks quality and works as it should, this is a bike that I intend to keep and continue to enjoy.
    The wife has not had a chance to try the pillion yet, hopefully this weekend so I'll report back her findings.
    So anyone out there thinking about the Crosstourer I encourage you to try one ASAP.........
