Re: Changing from a 1200GS to a Honda?

..... I would be looking at an Africa Twin dct if you are wanting to scratch that fancy gearbox itch, as i said its a marvel. The Africa Twin to me feels much thinner and spindlier. A dirt bike compared to the CT. Let us know how you get on. Thanks for this. I'm 5 foot 6 (and a half) and about 10 s...

Re: Changing from a 1200GS to a Honda?

DCT is brilliant. I tell anybody that listens to put it straight into "MT" manual and use the trigger and flipper for gear changing but a mate had a shot and loved how idiot proof the experience was in Auto. Later versions are apparently cleverer and can be more tailored in Auto. (2013 DCT Crosstou...

Re: had to be done!

Fantastic price for the amount of metal you are getting. I could not really pick any holes on the quality either. Unfortunately they are too physically big for SWMBO so we are still looking at that *cough* "UK" option. :D

No wonder they are apparently selling loads. They have nailed it.

Re: Scottish MCN Motorcycle Show

Dissapointed they do not have all the different types of bike starting up and having a wazz on the throttle for a minute or so out the back anymore. Always pulled a crowd hearing the weird and wonderful or just plain loud. Classics, customs, road-race, speedway, drag bikes. Loved it.
