We came third out five. That's a positive and moving in the right direction.
Last year we would have been 6th.  :745:

It would be nice for the Journalists to eventually recognize what a good bike the CT is, but as long as we are all happy with our bikes - that's all that matters  :028:

It only goes to prove that no one on this site is influenced by what journalist report.

Merci Ducouple,
I understood the most of that, But just a little confused with one of the negative points to the CT- "ERGONOMICS HYBRID"?? are they not happy it is based on the VFR1200 or is it something else?
"life on board" scores one point  less on the CT than on the Explorer.... when every other tester complained of the switch gear on the Explorer as been too hard to reach etc, maybe they are not happy with the horn/ indicator switches on the CT.
I recently checked out an Explorer at a show and agree with the testers that the cruise control and some other accessory switches are impossible to reach from the normal grip position, quite strange, and while I am on a slight rant, the Trophy is plain ugly in real life.
Better stop now or Captn. Scarlet will be on to scold...

I used the translate button but  wished I hadn’t bothered.

How can they award 5 stars to the new GS for stability when other journalist are reporting tank slappers and steering issues.  :157:
