Default Finally got a touring bike

Hi,

After years of looking for something with more storage space and extra wind protection I finally got a Cross Country. I've had my eye on these things since they first came out. I managed to pick up a very lightly used 2012 and am liking it so far.

I'm getting a bit of a bad habit lately though. The garage is getting packed. I don't think I'm going to get rid of my VTX because the bikes are very different and I will still want the X around for shorter rides where I can get a little more grin from twisting the throttle. And my CBR fills the need when I want a lot more grin twisting the throttle!





Later,
Rob

Congrats, enjoy the ride, and build a bigger garage.
