    Gears or DCT AT Test Ride

    So I dropped off the CT at the dealers this morning for it's service and first MOT.  I'd pre-arranged to take an AT out for the day.



    Honda man : "We have a Convential Gears and we have a DCT AT available"

    Me: "Oooh, excellent, I'll have the DCT I think.  Everyone say's how good they are, but I haven't had the opportunity to ride one yet."

    Honda Man :  "Ok, No worries.  Just to let you know, the AT with the conventional gear box has a Termignoni race pipe on it"

    Me: "DCT's for wimps!!!  Gimme the one with the pipe!!!"


    And that's how it came to be that the AT and I went on a 150 mile circuit of Kent and East Sussex for the day.  Sweet sweet music.  It's a great bike but I won't be trading the CT in just yet.

    Glad you stayed in the  fold though.  :028:  :031:

    So you had the chance to try something new and awesome that you never tried before, but you chose to decline that chance, and go for a loud pipe instead? Wow, that sounds like a quite stupid decision, actually. No offense...

    That might be a stupid decision to you but to me it made sense.

    I can go and ride a DCT whenever I want.  Demonstrator bikes with Termignoni race pipes don't appear every day.

    I had to google 5 minutes to understand what that means. Here's a little tip for you, fella: next time you try to offend a foreigner - use a simpler words.
