What “Twin” do you own ?

Just kinda curious as to what model most forum members currently have/ride..

A current picture of her all “dressed” up with all the improvements you’ve added would be nice too along with your vote.

THANKS!

My 2017 DCT:





I love the bike, the only bike I've read about that I'd consider changing it for would be the 2020 ATAS DCT ES, but I'm unlikely to spend that much when my 2017 is already great for my needs.

Since this picture was taken I've put 50/50 tyres on it. Bridgestone AX41.

Yea, I’m still waiting for my ORM tires to wear out, otherwise I’d have a set of 50/50’s on mine...

Yeap, I've kept my original ones for a long long road trip down the road (Nullarbor plain). But for now I am trying knobbies and they are great on and off road. You'll love 50/50's when you get them!

Yea had Kenda 270’s on my old bike and loved those tires. They gave me no issues lasted pretty long for a 50/50 and to top it off were ungodly CHEAP a set of front AND rear for under 100$ A bit dicey in the rain, but knobby’s on wet tarmac who wouldn’t expect that.. Yea can’t wait, the OEM tires on gravel at around 80 are a bit floaty; but it is, what, like a 90/10 tire, so I really can’t complain. But it did out due my expectations in mud... I kinda thought mud would be close to like riding on ice with those, but surprisingly they actually flung some mud and I was astounded... tho I’m sure most of it was just stuff that was just sticking to the tire getting flung off, but it did do some nice roost’s none the less...

Probably shared these pics before, but first pic is left-side with (Touratech Zega Mundo) pannier rack with boxes off early last spring and second picture is best I can find right now of right-side profile shot with boxes on, (but before I added the bar risers and handlebar guards). Gary
