Hello from Scotland
on: February 19, 2013, 08:32:13 PM
Hi Everyone, not a CT owner yet but in the market for one now, Last adventure bike was a Caponord.

Have a Kawasaki GTR1400 for now. Had a test drive on a VFR1200 DCT but decided the riding position was not good and I will opt for the CT

The VFR1200F wasn't for me either, those days are behind me now (4 VFR800's) I like my comfort - you'll love the CT with DCT - everyone does.

Once again  :400:

Hello from Scotland (during the week) and England (at weekends)  :400:

I do a couple of deliveries near you, one customer near the red rucks (europa bathrooms) and another (ecko) at Uphall and tend to pass through Broxburn a few times a week going to or from the Forth road bridge or Edinburgh


(avoid the Honda topbox)

Ah Scotland! Ciamar a tha sibh? I love Scotland and it`s humor, I can watch Still Life and Chewing the Fat for hours not to mention one of the most awesome countries to ride your bike! Lot`s of good memories and a very good friend (John Clark from Luthermuir, rides an ST1100) over there.  Welcome!

The CT is the most comfortable bike I have owned however I have never owned anything close to the GTR for touring.

I think Honda have tried to make amends for the rubbish tank range on their sports tourer and came up with a fantastic all round package in the CT

If you are buying in the central belt I bought mine from Victor Devine in Glasgow, more money for the trade in and no limit on the demo bike when taking it out. Two Wheels in Edinburgh you can make your own mind up about if you go there , but I have had my CT since last September and despite calling them after a demo ride I am still waiting on the return phone call. Phoenix at Grangemouth might be an option but Devines gave me such a good deal I didn't try Phoenix.

If you aren't bothered about buying locally then Doble will give you a very good deal but Devines were within £100 so I opted to keep my business near by should I ever need any warranty work.
