Ordered my DCT today
« on: June 10, 2012, 10:46:59 PM »
I have been wanting to buy one bike to 'do it all' instead of the 3 bikes i run at the moment :164:

Having completed a 3 hour test ride on the Triumph explorer last weekend and was put off by the 'hair trigger' throttle and STOOPID cruise control system (read 'dodgy') i have finally found a dealer that has a DCT on demo :046: :152:

I was all arranged to pick up a Manual geared version from Blackpool honda yesterday and to ride it to Lancaster honda (same group) to then take out the DCT for a run and then swop back to the Man back to blackpool, then the rains came BIG style so i cancelled :157:

However the nice young sales lady called Laura re-arranged it all for today after seeing the weather forecast was better so off we went (my son as pillion)

I was impressed already but when i got on that flipping DCT i was over the moon :020:

So i bought one  :031:

Digital silver DCT with SE pack

The deal was done when they gave me a decent price for my trade-ins (yes, there were 2 of them)

My 08 hornet FA8 and a citroen C2VTR !!!

I'm Ian, a 57 years old chap from Leigh, Lancashire, UK.

Also run a TDM900

and a TRX850 which i bought for my new hobby of trackdays (only been twice up to now but enjoyed them immensely)

Will be frequenting the forum on a regular basis so see you all soon

Ian

Hi scotsy. I'm pleased you've joined the Crosstourer gang. I do hear Explorer owners are having problems. I hope you have a great time and enjoy your new ride. I am very pleased with my DCT.  :031:
