Congrats Loudpedal! Looking forward to meet you again in Andorra next May.

Thanks Bernard

Had a loose plan to make the VIM this year. But not working out now due to a family wedding
Maybe next year


Bike still needs some bits and peices. But main stand and fender extender help with the cleaning

I should receive mine in three weeks, is there a tubeless version? I understand the only color avialable is blue tricolor.

So Jack, is your AS at home ? have you tried it ?

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.
