Feel like a salesman
on: May 11, 2013, 10:10:39 AM
Do you recognize it?

When parking the CT, it attracts people like a magnet  :001:

Everybody wants to know a lot, how does it ride, whats the black lever on the left, is it better then the GS ( YES  :169: :169: )
whats that + and - and how works the DCT etc, etc.

Here I am (you see me on the back) talking and explaining to 2 VFR800 drivers (soon to be new members, maybe..  :008:



Sometimes I feel like a salesman but it's fun to do, and it a great bike

The general talk I receive, its much better looking then on the pictures, Honda did a great job.
I predict that the CT will sell better when there are more around.  (OK it is still a lot of money  :086: )

Yeah totally agree. Because they are so rare and so individual other bikers are always around it like bees with honey :-)

I get a lot of peeps asking how the DCT works , as they were expecting a simple twist and go. I think I could be a Honda salesman by now.         Cozmo. How many Ct's do you get down at the Quay ? I would still like to get down there this year.

Quite amazing really, considering the amount of bikes that you get down there. Certainly makes for good conversation when you are the only one :305:
After watching that Tony Robinson series where he walked some of the coastline down there, it made us realize what great times we had down there  :152:

Not yet mate !
I did show it to another manual CT owner that I met in Abergavenny today, a guy from Malvern who may just join the forum after I told him about it.
