Slomogadgee, Aye aye min, fae Peterheid? Yer nae that far fae me! Hiv tae meet up fir a rin some day. ;)
Aye, Martin was at Ecosse, didn't see Charlie though? A silver CT and a Black one, also a CT demo bike, only one NC700X in red and no demo to be seen? It was the DCT NC700X we went to have a look at and demo possibly, disappointing.  :003: A white NC and I might have been persuaded! (2nd bike req)

I must admit though, climbing on to the CT after the long hard winter on a 1990 Africa Twin, I found the bike quite timid and unexciting following the XRV with noisy pipe and low down torque! But on the run yesterday I got back into the CT and loved the bike. So, I now have two bikes that I love to bits, the Africa Twin is a brilliant fun bike, shows its credentials offroad as it manages tracks far better than the CT. The CT is a stunning road bike with oceans of power but coped well enough offroad yesterday. Lookin forward to the summer now! Bring on the boil rally end of the month in Cumbria!
