Hello everybody.
Bought an Africa Twin DCT last week. Starting to farkle it. Crash bars, scott oiler etc.
Cracking deal from Honda. PCP plan less than an I Phone!
Hope to see you all in Andorra on a proper bike now that I have returned to the fold.

Another Yorky seeing sense --- look out for the red and white blur when you're out and about  ;) there's at least 2 of us running round our neck of the woods --mine's the one with the silver Honda bars on  ;D ;D
If the truth fits---wear it !!!!

Good to have you back, about time! What made you make the swap from the Triumph back to the Africa Twin? I thought the Explorer 1200 had good ratings... ?

Explorer was a great bike but it was getting on a bit. Owned it for 5 years. New ones were over priced and the weight was getting to me.
Hondas DCT promotion made it a no brainer. A new bike for less than an I phone per month!
