Cheers oskar. I’m really looking forward to taking it to the Picos and then travelling through Spain and back through France next year when this horrid COVID-19 has been banished.  :028:

Good luck with the AT. It is a good reliable bike. Look here but it is an Austrian site.

Must be honest my first choice would have been the Adventure Sport but I’m afraid budget and the slightly heavier weight played a major part in choosing the AT.

Agree, Nice as it is, the Adventure Sports is a very pricey bike.

Out of interest Dave, you say the DCT is in a different league? know about the 3 sport modes but i what way do you find it better? As you know i have the same model CT as you had.

Hi Paul.
It just seems even more seamless than the CT, plus it’s more intuitive as for example, it doesn’t change while cornering.
