eray, Thanks for posting https://youtu.be/1jiEwWAh-pY. This is first video clip I've seen of the AT being ridden by an average Joe. The bike doesn't appear to be much larger or sound much different from my current DR650. Will reserve final judgement until I can actually sit/ride one, but USA MSRP of $12,999 seems a bit high. YMMV.

Hamburger fattened and in the wind
33K miles on my '12 DR650

Hopefully you plan on strapping a gopro onto it, wouldn't mind seeing that sort of coverage

Winter is coming and no riding anymore here. Otherwise I would record and post the footage when my bike arrives. I was the first non-Honda personnel to sit on the bike

I've noticed some guys really push it into cold temps that keep most off the road, around what temperature do start to avoid riding?
