    Back on a Honda

    Hi from a Yorkshire newbie. Back on a Honda after a year with a Triumph Trophy which replaced a much loved Honda Pan. Really pleased with my 2016 DCT (updated model). A 3 day scottish borders trip saw me sorted with the DCT, I've settled on Sport Level 1 which suits my riding style with manual mode useful down tight twisty lanes. Turns out me & newbie Navigator1946 (see earlier post) were chasing the same bike at one point. We know each other but didn't know we were both on a buying hunt at the same time. I won the red one but he's got himself a very nice white Highlander. Given us lots to talk about...  :046: :305:

    Welcome to you both, i have just bought Harri183's 2015 DCT but it was an easy swop for me as i had 4 cracking years on my other DCT CT before going manual on a new AT last year. Just sold my old CBX1000z which has helped me keep both bikes now so i might put some 50/50 tyres on the AT now. It certainly doesn't like mud or grass with these TA2's i have on at the moment.

    The CT will be used for longer trips once i get it back on the road in about 10 days time  :082:

    I think we are spending too much time on this site, Daumard!  :031:
    Just love my HONDA Crosstourer dct, and my manual TDM900.
