    CT to go soon

    Agreed a sale of the CT  today

    Trading in for a new AT AS spec

    Been great for 35K but its heavy. The AT is lighter but the AS spec is taller by far

    Oh well, will be swapping over after a trip to the Black Forest in early Sept

    Cheers folks

    If I only rode 1 up I’d probably do the same.

    Agree....   If I could only have one bike, it wouldn't be the CT.  If only one bike... I would probably own an AT with DTC.

    But since I have a pristine KTM 950 Adv-S..... the CT is my highway machine.  And as far as a highway touring bike... It is rather light!   hahahahahhahaha    Couple hundred lbs less than a Goldwing or Full Dress Harley.

    Good luck, I did the same for health reasons (back issues). AT is more lighter, agile, great for back road riding and evidently okay for one up touring (a couple of friends do it, I cannot tour no more). Also need a DCT (left foot injury) so the AT is a suitable replacement for me.Still miss the CT though great engine, torque and of course this forum. Look forward to hear how you get on Maverick. Ride safe  :305:

    Thanks Bill

    I hope the AT does all those things plus some 2 up touring

    Apparently, an 1100cc AT is coming.

    And maybe an 850cc too - though that appears to be a bit more speculative?
