Hello from Colorado

I picked up a 2019 DCT base model last week and am thrilled. I look forward to some great rides this year, including a ride to Portland, OR over the summer. My previous bike was 15’ f700gs and crf250 rally. I loved the rally, but saw to much overlap to justify keeping it. Cheers!

Awesome Mcrockard, congratulations on your '19 AT acquisition. It is great to be thrilled, again. Most of all, welcome to the Forum!

Riding is good therapy.

Thank you for the warm welcomes. I never thought I would ever get a DCT version not alone being “thrilled” about it. Something about DCT that is inspiring.

I have not been out on it very far due to the sub-freezing temperatures. I will report back after a few rides and maybe a pic or two.

Cheers!

The DCT certainly opens opportunities to enjoy the ride in other ways.
