This got me thinking back Brian......... checked my own posts from almost 3 years ago when I finally managed to find a dealership with a DCT on demo
quote from 10-06-2012 :-
I have been wanting to buy one bike to 'do it all' instead of the 3 bikes i run at the moment
Having completed a 3 hour test ride on the Triumph explorer last weekend and was put off by the 'hair trigger' throttle and STOOPID cruise control system (read 'dodgy') i have finally found a dealer that has a DCT on demo
I was all arranged to pick up a Manual geared version from Blackpool honda yesterday and to ride it to Lancaster honda (same group) to then take out the DCT for a run and then swop back to the Man back to blackpool, then the rains came BIG style so i cancelled
However the nice young sales lady called Laura re-arranged it all for today after seeing the weather forecast was better so off we went (my son as pillion)
I was impressed already but when i got on that flipping DCT i was over the moon
So i bought one
Digital silver DCT with SE pack
The deal was done when they gave me a decent price for my trade-ins (yes, there were 2 of them)
My 08 hornet FA8 and a citroen C2VTR !!!
I'm Ian, a 57 years old chap from Leigh, Lancashire, UK.
Also run a TDM900
and a TRX850 which i bought for my new hobby of trackdays (only been twice up to now but enjoyed them immensely)
Will be frequenting the forum on a regular basis so see you all soon
The only problem with these fond memories is that it has made me realise the 3 year warranty is up in about 3 weeks
