When I'm in a car I can't wait to get there. When I'm on a bike I can't wait to not get there. -RR

2016 ADV RALLY in Gunnison CO July 14-18

Honda was a sponsor for this event and brought out 5 bikes for us to ride at Harmon Rocks Off Road Park, Some even deviated from the course to add a few more seat miles on the knobby shod Twin

Todd in Texas

Howdy from Tex,

I live in Texas and saw this bike in a magazine last Sept 2015. I knew at that time I wanted one to replace my Tried and True XR650R 2000 I bought new and installed many mods over the years.

The New African Twin arrived in June, after the announcement of the Factory closing and delaying shipment. The Color I picked was the Red White, however the Silver was what came in. It was take it or leave it time. So I test road it and hauled it home. I spent numerous hrs deciding on the Protection, Bags, and who offered the total package of add ons.

I went through my Dealer with my Discount and decided on Touratech. I could not be happier. Now I have completed the 600 mile service and took my modified bike to Colorado and road 600 miles off road on the trails up there. I was constantly comparing my new bike to the capabilities of my old Big Red Pig XR650R. The Suspension on the African Twin lacked the smoothness over hi speed rocket terrain I have / had with my XR. I call this Eye Blurr, from the feedback through the forks and handle bars. Tire Pressure, Compression Dampening, Pre Load, nothing removed this eye blurs. I jumped back on my Old Xr and road one handed through the same sections, and laughed just how good and smooth it can be! I said we have work to do!

Far as handling in larger bumps, the AT did pretty well. The front end seems soft, and will not track over the high speed 2-5 inch rocks like my old XR does. Now I done my XR suspension right after I bought it in 2000 and change fork oil ever two years.

I just bit the buillet and ordered the Extreme Front Fork Cartridges and Rear Extreme Shock from Touratech. I can't wait until I test out the new suspension. Here are picts of my bike today after i rode it this morning.
I have 1600 miles now and put the street tires back on after returning from Colorado back in August.

I love my new bike, once I get the eye blur out, suspension dialed in, I will have even more confidence riding off road.

After changing the tires twice, I have decided a center stand is a must! I have ordered the Honda center stand, Heated Hand Grips, Power Plug, and Tourtech Handles for the top of the Panniers.

Rode to Florence Colorado today and, despite the sunshine in these photos, it was quite cold. Definitely time for some heated gear.
