Hi everyone. I have been a member since May 2012 after seeing the forum launch, and taken two test rides on the CT from two different dealers. Initial thoughts were that it was definitely more suited to my riding style ( and age ) than my 2010 VFR 1200FD. I have been following the threads with interest over the past 10 months to keep up to date with peoples experiences. A few weeks ago I found myself at a local Honda dealer Brindley Wolverhampton. They had two CT's one in black, one in red that they had given a considerable reduction from list. My 1200FD went to live there a couple of Saturdays ago, and I picked up the black CT on 1st March.
16 miles home and tucked up in the garage. Despite the salt on the roads I set off with a couple of mates yesterday at 10 a.m. Ride up to the midway truckstop for a breakfast, then up through Wrexham and up to the ponderosa at the horseshoe pass for a tea. Down through Llangollen. Then on to Betws-y-Coed. Thought it would be nice to see the sea as we were so close so headed over the mountains down through the slate mines and through Porthmadog to Criccieth. Back around Bala lake ( awesome road if you know it ) and eventually back home for 7:30 p.m. 280 miles, no aches, and a big smile on my face
Great bike. Few more pieces of info. Manual , not that I didn't like the dual clutch. Honda heated grips. Old hugger from my VFR12. It does fit. New centre stand, the tech did fit the one from my FD but it didn't touch the floor ( not much use then ). Going to go and wash all the salt of now. Great forum, great bike.
