Hi from Hamshire UK

Did my first ride out on the AT today.
Downsized from a Crosstourer which was too heavy for an old man....

Took about 5 miles to get the fell of it and after that felt right at home.

Road conditions were damp and some of the roads in poor condition but my worries about the tyres seemed unfounded. Of course I'll need to do a few more miles to be completely comfortable but think you have to bear in mind they are not designed as a sports tyre.

Looking forward to getting to know the bike better over the next few months.
