My wife bought me a black 2010 Cross Roads demo last October from Max Motorsports in Pelham, Alabama. She had previously told me there was NO WAY I was EVER getting a bike because I would kill myself on it and she's have to raise our kids alone! Her best friend was buying one for her husband (also a surprise), and I was part of surprising him.....to MY SURPRISE, she had also purchased my bikethumb up. My brother in law is the sales manager at the dealer, and he'd broken the bike in "right" (it had 3k mi when I got it), and had installed the Stage 1 exhaust, K&N airfilter, and reflashed it; it hauls ass! I commute in to Houston on this thing every day that is 30% or less chance of rain. I also go to the gym on it, um really anywhere that I can!
