3,500 km on my Africa Twin and it's far, far better than I was expecting after moving from Ducati Multistrada to honda.
Love the bike it just does everything it says.
Plenty of power smooth but still with plenty of feed back to the rider.
Eats the bumps and bad roads like a MX machine.
Two up it's fine, I travel light so can't comment about all up heavy touring with boxes etc. When I tour it's with the minimum luggage.
My biggest complaint is not being able to ride more.
My second complaint would be the difficulty of getting to the air filters.
Conditions here in Thailand are almost always very hot and humid and or wet or HOT and dusty. Bike is fine no issues at all which is a relief after the Ducati.
Really happy with the decision to change to Honda.
