|Mcmu72||Does anyone have the paint code for the frame? I have the candy red bike with the charcoal-ish color frame. Fortunately no rut. Unfortunately, a few rather unsightly scratches from a rather bad experience taking off a set of crash bars (one of the bolts completely stripped, drilling out left enough of the head on that it wouldn't come lose, so I had to bend the bracket to eventually get it off and left a few ugly scratches).|

I had a 17 AT and then traded it for a 18 ATAS. I think the basic bike is very pretty, however, the fit, finish, and build quality are terrible, especially for their flagship adventure bike. Add to that poor customer service and response. My frame welds are terrible. Will soon be inspecting my fuel tank and fuel pump for crud, and the forks for premature wear. I am very careful treating my rims and spokes. Honda, you really made it a difficult job to change the air cleaners. I admit that the engine and DCT have been pretty good. This bike is getting close to BMW GS pricing (I think BMW still offers a 3 year warranty rather than the one year from Honda).
It was not long ago when Honda Motorcycles were known for quality and value. I currently do not consider Honda Motorcycles to be built with quality and value, but rather built for a price. I will enjoy and take care of my ATAS, but do not plan on purchasing any more Honda motorcycles and automobiles.

I had to remove my petrol tank this week. the underside of the tank was rusty - bad!
In 25 years of riding bikes, I've never had this.
god knows what they are doing when they paint these bikes!

I think - if I were considering purchasing a new bike now, id be less worried about if they had fixed this one issues... and more about the fact that, whatever issues you might find, they just don't want to stand by their product and sort it out for the current owner!
You purchase - you take on that risk

|Speedo007||Looking to buy a 2019 AT, have they finally addressed the weld/rust issues?|
