    Greetings from Oregon, USA!

    Just acquired 2017 VFR1200X DCT... Seems like a great bike.

    But a Total Failure here in the States! 

    Africa Twin outsells it 10-1, maybe more.

    Certainly discontinued now.

    Poor Honda, can't catch a break with their V-4.  While the CBR1000 owners are begging for one!

    Anyway, great riding here in the Pacific Northwest area of the U.S.  Ocean, Mountains, Desert, you name it!

    Take care, ride safe!

    Hi Motoman
    I'm in the UK, to many people, not enough space but we do have a lot of ocean  :001: (oh, and some hills).

    This seems to be a Brit dominated forum!  Cheers, Mates!

    Hi Motoman,
    Welcome from Ireland.
    I have toured Idaho but that is as close as I have got to Oregon!

    Hey Motoman, welcome. I am in North Carolina and as of yet seen another CT on the streets anywhere. They are a rare bird for sure. I am always getting asked at the fuel stations, what is that? I'm not sure why it was such a slow seller here in the states other than it being so tall, but having driven the AT and the CT I can tell you there is no comparison for street riding and touring. The AT is just lethargic in comparison. Good luck with the new ride and enjoy being one of the few, the proud, the CT owners.

    Welcome, from a fellow PNW rider.  Hey, we almost have enough American owners to have the World's smallest rally!
