    Hi everyone, new to this forum and new owner of a 2016 CT/DCT, hoping to pick up some good advice, opinions about owning this big beastie, just changed up from a Yamaha XT1200ze and although it had more tech than the Honda, just loved the looks of it, and just so intrigued by the DCT aspect, just had to try it, and then have it, just love the DCT as does my arthritis.

    By the way Guys, not had time to interrogate the forum yet, but can anyone tell me if the MRA Vario screens make much of a difference to the CT over the Honda touring screens, about to order one as find the wind buffeting pretty severe as the speed increases, far wore than my XT1200  :087:

    Hi smudger and  :400: along to the colleCTive.  :028:
    I to went from a S10 to the CT and while the S10 is in my opinion an underrated bike I find the CT far superior in ride, engine performance and comfort, so enjoy the pleasures of the CT smudger.  :028:
