And even though I came away loving the handling and suspension, I was underwhelmed by the power and rattles. (Both valve train and fairing + lids) I currently have a Octane and 07 Yamaha Venture. Was planning on replacing the Venture as it is so top heavy with either a Goldwing or the Cross Country Tour.The used one I rode has 27,000 miles on it and was immaculate with new tires. So I was surprised and disappointed at the rattling. Also am accustomed to the Venture with its V4 and monster mid range power and the Octane which screams to 8000 rpm and has 100 hp of go. So possibly the power just might not be what I am accustomed to. What have you owners done or experienced with your Cross Countrys?
