Having bought my 2012 CT back in October, I've hardly ridden it until today. It was due a service, so I wanted to keep the miles down until I could get the time off work and get the 8k service completed, Over Xmas I added some accessories:
Givi rear carrier & pannier racks for my existing luggage.
Left and right R & G crank case covers.
R & G Heated grips (very handy today)
Tom Tom sat nav power feed & mount
12 V socket
SW Motech Hand guards
Denali Soundbomb horn (deafening )
And today, the weather was set fair, so I went for a bimble down from Liverpool, through the Peak District to visit a mate in Matlock (my home town) for coffee and back home via different bits of the Peak District. I have to say, I was a happy bunny when I got home. The CT is a dream to ride, fantastic on the motorways, rock steady, and far better around the twistys than it looks like it should be
. Great, comfy riding position for a lanky so & so like me too. Numb bum and stiff wrists at the end of the day, but that's probably down to me not being bike fit. I commute 30 mins EW on my Yamaha TDM900 every day, but I haven't done a decent run since the Summer. About the only negative criticism I had was that the throttle felt heavy after a while holding motorway speeds. I'd have thought a fly by wire throttle would be lighter. Anyone got any suggestions?
