After annoying the girlfriend for the last 3 months about upgrading (the bike, not the gf), she finally said "I can't believe you haven't done it already, you decided ages ago!". So two weeks ago I ordered myself the new Honda VFR800X Crossrunner. Just finished putting its first 1,000k's on it this weekend. At the first service they will put on the centre stand and heating grips. So far its being an absolute blast to ride, but I upgraded from a Suzuki GS500 so anything with a bit of oomph would be impressive. Been giving it heaps during the run-in period and the fuel economy is seriously lacking as a result (250k per 20l) I'm going on Neds High Country Ride in Feb so will provide my review of the bike after that. Edit: Even though Honda have "tried" to make it look like a dual sport, complete with dual sport tires, it is 100% sports-tourer.
