Hi from Bedford, England
« on: 07 January, 2020, 07:40:15 PM »
Hi All. Hope you don't think I'm here under false pretences but I p/x'd my 1050 a little while ago & went to the dark side for a Honda Africa Twin.
Around the same time my 'Tesco.net' closed down & I wasn't able to change details & so went quite for a while. Anyway, whilst not a current  owner;
a) such forums are a great source of humour & good information & so I've pulled my finger out, washed it & so registered as a new member
b) I have a seat & a nose cone from the bike which need to find a new home & so I'll get them onto here over the next couple of days.

Thanks All

Cheers.
Have to say that I like the AT & am just waiting till its out of warranty so I can avoid main dealer prices. I rode both the DCT and the manual but went for the manual in the end with hindsight & having just given up a 2 year commute into London maybe the DCT would have been the better choice but I'm looking for a shorter commute & so should  be less of an issue going forward.
Fuel economy is good & it sounds really nice with the standard can  :002: as well.
Seems to be many complaints about paint & general finish quality but I park mine o/s ( with a cover) & having used FS365 ( think that what its called) it is all good.
Biggest bug bear though are the auto cancelling indicators - :172: bloody hate them

Can you not turn the auto indicator function off?

Reasonably good looking bike but (new) how bloody much, seriously!
sorry, for that money it's not in the same league as a GS or KTM 1290,
I have heard dealers struggle to shift second hand DCT versions ???
