Hello from Lincolnshire
« on: February 15, 2015, 07:39:06 AM »
I pick up my black Highlander edition on wednesday. I am looking forward to a long and trouble free experience with the big Honda after many years with BMW. Anyone else from my neck of the woods?

Morning Beamish and  :400: Lincolnshire's a big county as we know, but there are at least 4-5 of us on here from Linc's, plus a few just over the Humber.
I'm on the border down near Dunham on trent toll bridge with an all black Dct.
The only real problems people have had with the CT are seizing rear shocks, due to dirt ingress behind the knob, which on the new ones and replacements they have an 'o' ring fitted to help stop the muck and water getting in.  :031:

Good morning Saxon, I'm in between Metheringham and Seaford. Good to hear that there are no real worries with the XT, got fed up with Handlebar controls failing, fear of the final drive etc.....quick look at the KTM forum put me off that direction and tried out a few of the new breed including the smaller MT09 tracer, nice but no weather protection to speak of.

Welcome Beamish, the only real problem youll have is that you didnt get a red one (More for Saxons benefit than yours :038:)

Enjoy the new bike :152:

 :400: Buddy, hope you enjoy your new toy, I came from BMW myself, I never had an issue but I always felt there was going to be.
