My previous bike was a ??????
on: November 02, 2015, 12:08:14 PM
After reading a few recent posts about people not being  happy with their CT`s,  and comparing the CT to a previous  bike . It got me wondering -whats the  most extreme change / trade in anybody done to own  a CT  : -  I px`d a KTM Adventure - Anybody go from a R6 or CBR600rr??? and was it a good decision??? :305:

I've just gone from  a Yamaha TDM900 to a CT. I'm still having to adjust to having all those ponies under my right wrist  :008:
Also in the garage: Yamaha TDM900 & XTZ750.

I went from my GTR1400 rode for 4yrs loved it, to dct Crosstourer for age related health issues.I hated CT until this years 3599mile tour round europe when it did everything we needed fairly well,DCT gearbox fantasticly smooth wife loves it also iffy brakes suspension and weight tends to have slowed me down a bit proberly a good thing at my age.Will look at AT when it comes out in January.

2 Varaderos for me so the CT was almost sporty compared to them :002:

CBF 1000 F; I liked feel of "lightness" compare to CT.
