    Did anyone see this in the latest RIDE magazine? Unsung heroes featuring a CT!



    Looks like the secret's out.

    Well spotted, your Hairiness.

    Definitely an underappreciated bike, and I certainly don't view 127hp and 126 Nm of torque "dull"!  :005:

    cheers for that. Practically ignored by the press for years.  :187:

    Well, as the article said, they'd be 30% more to buy used than a GS if everyone knew about them!

    Thanks HM,
    If the press had not been so fixated on the GS over the years the CT and the big Tenere would have sold in much higher numbers. I dont get their fixation with some brands and not others unless advertising revenue.

    Anyway I dont care, its a select Crosstourer club of aficionados  :031:

    Like you say, advertising revenue.

    I agree - everyone and their monkey has a GS or an Africa Twin. I enjoy being part of an elite group with a bike only known to the wise!  :821:

    It's interesting isn't it. On several occasions of late I've been parked up, sitting away from my bike, enjoying a cuppa at one of my usual Derbyshire haunts. Even though my CT has been veritably surrounded by GS''s, the passers by, fellow bikers and just general spectators have often paused and looked at my CT, rather than its germanic neighbours. I think our CTs are genuinely a rare breed and generate a lot of curiosity.
