WTF!

Might as well buy the autobox VFR and ride carefully on the 6km dirt to home.

What an almighty FUBAR.

I sometimes despair with the slant-eyed people.
Adventure is taking the wrong equipment to inappropriate places.

Yeah - REALLY disappointing!
There is nothing you can do about the past and you can't predict the future...all you have is the now...live it to the fullest.

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Sorry, nope no more specs... someone mentioned 240 kg wet for the 800cc V4 CrossRunner on ADVRider... the CrossTourer, well, see my last pic.

the 800 is designed for tar only according to this site...

As if it wasn't obvious from the peekchas ;D

the_wes - anytime mate.  And I didn't only post it because I think it LOOKS like an anvil! :biggrin:

Yup. Mags and everything. Looks interesting for a "padbike". Different. All road bikes look the same these days.

Quote from: somedudeonadvrider
Not sure what's the point of that bike to be honest. It looks heavy too, not sure if it really is. But for upright commuter/city bike it looks too wide and too heavy and won't be able to come close to Hornet CB1000R in power or usability as well as to most of "euro nakeds". Plus it seems to have shedloads of things to break if God forbid it falls on the side. And wind protection does not seem to be so good to make it long-distance hauler.

The Xrunner is SERIOUSLY fugly!

Any idea what the "enclosed sprocket" at the rear is all about?
