Well, that's the first 600 miles in and round to Willie Young Motorcycles in Elgin today for its first service. Oil and filter changed, bike inspected, first service done! "How much do I owe you for that sir?" "first service is free Jim!" "Excellent!" Next service 8000 miles but Willie says best change the oil at 4k, so I'll go with that.
Oh the relief of being back to Honda!
The one and only complaint I have about the bike is an easy fix, it needs a touring screen. The standard screen is no good, on low it focuses the wind blast in my neck and on high setting hits me right in the face. I'll fit a touring one asap and let you know what I think.
Fuelwise, I'm getting over 200 miles to a tank and refills around the 20 litre mark, more or less.
I've been playing with the suspension settings today, I've softened the front preload and let off some damping and the rear I've hardened and let off some damping so hopefully see the bike settling down and a bit less bouncy. So to sum it up, so far I'm delighted with the Crosstourer and hope to add some bling in the near future. Two main thoughts as I ride the bike are "oh my giddy aunt" and "sweet Jesus!" Accompanied by a big grin when I'm not thinking "sweet Jesus!" LOL!
My Tiger's still in the shop, not fixed! That'll be six weeks now!
