    With the CT being dropped, what next??

    Following on from the the "CT gone" thread, sooner or later most of us will chop the CT in for something else.  With no CT on the market would you go for another adventure style bike or a full on tourer, naked, retro or super scooter?

    Just as a bit of fun while its not really riding weather for a lot of us so what do you think your replacement might be?
    Thought this may throw up some interesting ideas.

    For me it needs to be capable of touring comfortably 2 up but also work for a couple of hour ride on a sunny day. GS1200 has to be in it (if i can convince the Misses) Triumph Tiger 1200 too. But im probably more of a Yamaha fan than any other brand so what id love to see is Yamaha update the Super10.  Another option would be an FJR1300, had one before, superb bike.

    So what about you?

    I would only get rid of the CT once the weight becomes an issue for me and I think I would probably look at a Triumph TT100 or an NC750 or even an Honda XADV scooter.

    I'm trapped in so far as to say I need DCT (left foot injury) but if I had the choice I would go back to the VFR 800 and if I could tour it would be the Goldwing DCT. The reverse gear would compensate for its weight.

     :0461: must admit Yasko I have to agree. If finances ever allow it, which is highly doubtful I would also like to give the new Goldwing a try, especially as back in the day I use to own one of the original Goldwings.  :028:

    BMW R1200RT with gear shift assist pro, it's a halfway house to DCT, matches revs up and down and no need to use the clutch lever except for start off and stop, just ordered one but still keeping my 2018 CT DCT of course.  :028:

    I am going to buy two new CT as soon as possible..............that should guarantee a new supply for the next 10 years.

    I would stick my CT as long as possible for me there only two bikes I go for
    The first is the CBF1000 in line four bit of plain Jane the other is the old CBR1000FP in the early 90’s before the black birda heave bike but a brilliant sports tourer with to days suspension to give new legs a brilliant engine which done close to 90.000 miles just a lot of services every 4.000 miles .
