The Deed is Done!
on: August 21, 2013, 05:27:20 PM
I've signed on the dotted line for a nice new white CT! Doble's gave me a cracking deal and it is costing me a mere £600 to change from my year old GS Adventure to the new CT. I pick it up on the 5th September and I can't wait! :001:

Excellent! They look superb in white  :031:

Make sure you get a picture on here as soon as you've got it..

What accessories are you getting for the CT, and finally, how come you've chopped your year old GS Adv so soon? Did you not get on with the big Beemer?

I can only recommend the Honda - mine is now 5 and a bit months old with 3400 miles on it and the engine is just superb, definitely improves as the miles pile on..

I agree, I saw a white one today for the first time and really liked it.

Centre stand, Honda heated grips (thrown in as part of the deal) and Givi top box mounting plate.

I have owned BMW boxer twins continuously (apart from a two year break between May 1999 and June 2001) having owned an R1100GS, R1150GS, R1200GS and finally the 1200GS Adventure so no issues with them, I get on with them well, but I thought it was time to try something different.

The engine is a peach and I am looking forward to that smooth and grunty power :002:

SHR61 - I'd recommend adding a fenda extenda and a radiator guard to your list of accessories. Both are relatively cheap to buy but both are worth their weight in gold in terms of protection. The radiator especially is big, expensive and vulnerable!

Nice one SHR61, glad you got sorted and as already said, they do look fabulous in white.

I fully intended to go for white but opted for red at the last minute after seeing the one in Dobles with all the Givi gear on it at the weekend.

Cheers,

Fender extender is always one of the first things I fit and thanks for the tip regarding the radiator guard.
