First Honda in 30 years of riding .
on: January 29, 2013, 09:21:22 PM
Hello to one and all. I will be picking up my Ct dct 2013 special edition in  pearl cosmic black within the next week or so.I have been looking at the Ct dct for a while as I have been having trouble with tendons in my clutch arm, so after owning a adventure bike for the last 4 yrs ,the Ct dct seemed the way to go.
I was in two minds about a brand new bike untill I saw the special edition Ct last Friday. A truly stunning looking bike. :020:

Looks like its double delight for you, first Honda and first CT. Not the fastest colour but almost certainly the coolest. :190:

Welcome  :400:

I test rode the Explorer before the CT because i have tendon trouble in my right arm and the 'cruise control' sounded like a very good idea.......it was utterly abysmal to operate

I then rode the CT manual and loved the engine

I then rode the DCT version and WOW  :020:

so i ordered one  :037:

You'd best order some cleaning and polishing equipment (Black bike :005:)
