Gone but not forgotten
on: February 28, 2020, 01:30:26 PM
My DCT has now gone, replaced with a Yamaha 900 GT.
The weight finally killed it for me but I will remember it for having one of the best engine and gearbox combinations.
The Yamaha is very much like a modern day KTM 990 SMT, a favorite of mine.
Losing 150lbs feels like I am riding a bicycle.

Tracer is very awkward bike. I'd never replace brilliant Crosstourer with this. If somebody want to replace CT with a lighter bike - than Africa Twin is a perfect replacement.

The decider for me, as I said, was the weight.
I did try the Africa Twin but 21" front wheel, the boring engine, not a patch on the V4, and the price made it a non starter.
