Mines coming next week, but I hired one for a week in Spain, mostly on road riding. My mate took an 800 GS.( I previously owned an 800 and loved it.)
AT was much quicker than the 800 through the twisties and I immediately gelled with it. (pegs scrape easily)
We averaged 250 miles a day and the bike was very comfy, when I had put the seat in the high position.
My last bike was a KTM 1190 ADV and obviously there is no comparison in performance but the Honda isn't slow. I had to keep stopping and waiting for the 800.
Suffice to say I traded in the KTM and ordered an AT. We both agreed it was a much better bike than the 800.
