Hello, Im Back !! (forgive me for I have sinned)
« on: February 02, 2021, 01:12:55 PM »
Hi Guys.

Im back, so some insane reason i decided to sell my Tiger 800 and brought a Crossrunner. I know, Im sorry. Just cant get on with it, lovely bike but i dont love it......

So im in the process of buying a Ex-Demo 900 GT Pro....... deposit down, just got to pay for it now... maybe end of next week....

So........ anyone want a Honda Crossrunner 2017 with about 10K on it ?

Glad to be back.

Welcome back!

What dont you like about the cross runner? I just brought a VFR800F to add to the stable and get it on Friday. Largely Im buying it for the noise it makes....and to save getting the tiger dirty.

Cheers Boldie

There is absolutely nothing i dont like about it, its difficult to say.. it just doesnt float my boat like the T800 did, i enjoyed every ride on the tiger, and i guess i do with the crossie, it just doesent put a smile on my face (as much as the T800)

yes, the sound is nice, the V4 after 6.5K without the baffle in certaily turns heads and it goes like stink. she looks good, as all the toys, the LED lights, the digital dash, the self cancelling indi's..... smooth gearbox.... its all good.... just not for me

Dunno its just not inspiring me... sadly (the Mrs isnt overly happy as ive only had her 6 months)  :430:

I had the same with my last bike, Ninja 1000SX. Great bike but too uncomfortable as my only bike and a bit soulless. Had that for 6 months too.
In fact I brought 3 bikes last year, Initially brought a tracer 900 but the fueling and suspension were awful so moved on to the Ninja before getting the Tiger.

Ive found I get into less trouble with SWMBO just buying another bike to complement my original purchase, if I sell the bike to get a new one Ive admitted Ive made a mistake which seems to be worse, well seems to work fine for my wife and her bike purchase so I just play along and do the same nowadays ;)

I rode the crossrunner and tiger back to back when I bought my first tiger. No comparison. The Crossrunner is perfectly competent and I was riding a Honda at the time so no problem with the brand or quality, but dull. The tiger is way more engaging, characterful and interesting/fun to ride. On the tiger I got off with a big grin on my face... not with the crossrunner.

Sorry, I figured this was optional. My mistake...
