Hello and welcome - keen to hear what has driven your desire to change from the GS to the CT ... BTW - mine on order is white I believe this is the best colour  :152:

 :400:  I have a feeling you won't be the last to change from the GS to the CT. You're going to love the CT, especially with DCT.
If you haven't ordered your CT with DCT, feel free to kick yourself now   :157:  -  it's so good!

Mine's silver and registered to ride from Thursday.   :305: :305: :305:

Hi guys thanks for the welcome,
The BMW GSA is also a great bike but i try to change bike every 2 - 3 years
And I really am a V4 fan,I did have a run on the new VFR 1200 when it finally was released in 2010, I liked the bike but I couldn't get on with the riding position due to a lower back problem that I have, At that time no bar risers were available and also the 18.5 litre tank put me off a bit especially after riding a 08 GSA with a 33 litre tank and all the toys it had so I bought a new GSA.
I sold my 2010 GSA privately a few weeks ago as I was a bit concerned that with the new Honda Cross Tourer and the Triumph Explorer being released it probably will hit used GS prices hard, I recently rode the new Triumph and although it is also a great bike the Honda build quality in my opinion is superior so after a quick run on the new Dct I am smitten, The bike just feels so well built and the engine is so smooth and has bags of low + mid range  grunt with superb handling and the Dct so easy to use and is vastly improved from the vfr version which is good but not as user friendly
So i just have to decide on which colour to go for
cheers for now

I change my bike as soon as the warranty runs out - to avoid possible repair bills.

I rode a VFR800i and 2 V-Tec's between 1998 and 2004, and from 2004 to 2012 I had three new ST1300's. I looked at the VFR1200F, but for the same reasons as you - tank range and riding position - I decided to wait.

From Thursday I will be riding the VFR1200XD - with the absolutely fantastic DCT MKII. If you are thinking of a CT then try the DCT MKII before you decide. You do not lose control over the bike, and it couldn't be easier to ride. Well done Honda.  :020:
