    Hi all I collect my new CT DCT Highlander next week, after many years of BMW ownership. I have become increasingly disappointed with the quality and service from BMW. I am hoping that Honda are much better in both respects.

    I think you are going to really enjoy it from the moment you turn the key and light up that Honda V4.  I’ve had mine since June.

    Welcome, I am a week ahead of you, got my DCT delivered yesterday. Been in the garage this afternoon fitting a rad guard and sump guard. Went very smoothly. Bike is very very well made IMHO. The more I read on this forum the more impressed I am about it, and the huge mileages some run up, hows 305,000 miles for example! Bit of an undiscovered gem.

    Thank you. I’m looking at fitting more of a touring screen and maybe some bar risers. I got the dealer to fit Honda heated grips and the Honda fog lights.

    Hiya mate.

    Great to see you earlier and benefit from your experiences. Perfect timing as you parked up as i was unloading the GS.

    I really liked the original 60 mile ride home to West Cornwall and the auto was a breeze to get to know (helped by having two auto cars in the fleet). Drive mode on the dual c’way, Sport on the twisty bits and I even had 10 mins in manual.

    Thanks for the info on the things you’d done and hope to see you again.
