Honda Agency told me that  one AT adventure sport has arrived to the agency and I can take measurements there.
When I rode the bike my feet were in such a posture that would be the envy of every ballet dancer, also they were informed that it might take months for a lowered seat to arrive.
All the experts at Honda Agency agreed that it would be too dangerous for me to ride the bike, And I settled with the idea of coming to VIM20 on my current AT.
On leaving the Agency I thought why not try the lowered seat of my current AT on the Adventure sport. We put the lowered seat on the Adventure sport and it fit and I felt quite comfortable sitting on it. I also took the  lowered Adventure sport for a test ride in the neighborhood and felt quite comfortable with it. So I paid a tremendous amount of money for the tradein in the neighborhood of 9,000 Euro and  completed the deal. I should get my new Adventure Sport next week and use it with my current lowered seat.

AS with my current lowered seat.

Looking good there Jack

I finally got out for a run on mine yesterday. 150 miles in mostly wet conditions.
Weather here in N. Ireland has been poor all year so far.  Very cold, lots of frost and worse, salty roads

So next run will hopefullty be on Dry Roads.
However I'm very happy with the power dilevery, the way the bike smothes out the bumps and the way it turns
All better than my 2016 dct CRF1000.
No more billy bolt on's as yet. still waiting for Givi to produce their racks for the outback boxes.



Keeping dry in a garage forecourt with a bunch of tossers.

I have got it in my house, since yesterday the first AT -  AS in Israel and in the middle east. I did some 40 kms. The bike is much cleaner than the old one, quite responsive. Somehow I get a lot of wind though the screen is height. I still have to decipher the electronic screen, I could not install the center stand of the old bike on the new because it is higher, so a new center stand is ordered. The old bike side bags fit the new bike but at the agency had to adjust the lock of the new key. I also invited a shop manual from Honda Agency something like 80 Euro. Now planning to reinforce for my big back box (written 10 kg) and planning what to take for VIM20.

Yesterday afternoon I fitted a TUTORO automatic chain oiler. Used the delux kit with the twin feed nozzle.
Then went for a wee 50 odd mile run to test it. The oiler works on the motion of your bike, as you go over bumps and crests the piston in the oiler moves and sends oil to the chain. No cutting into wiring or vacuum pipes.

Scottoiler have still not realeased their version.

To the owners of the new model, I'm wondering if the new rear is totally different or I could purchase the parts, to replace my 2017 plastic rear rack.
Can you guys give me an insight on this !?

Not clear Renald, if you speak about the "new model" or about the "Adventure Sport" ... IMO

I'm asking about the new Adventure sports metal rear rack, if I could replace my normal AT plastic rear rack without having to change the whole subframe,
I would guess it pretty much the same bike, just cosmetics !?

Sorry for not being clearer.
