Hi everyone! Been a lurker for a while, decided to pull the trigger and picked up my new 2022 CRF1100L DCT AS ES yesterday. The original delivery estimate was May but the bike arrived early (seems to be a pattern here - dealer mentioned something about orders showing up a few months earlier than expected). Was riding since 13, my first proper bike was a CB1100F2. Went through too many bikes to mention - but my busted knee told me that it's time to stop fooling around and buy one that I can ride with straight back and relaxed legs (even with a knee brace). Love the soft suspension, irons out cratered city streets nicely. DCT is a first to me, jury is still out on that one - no complaints so far except the lower-than-my-preference RPMs while cruising. S1 or S2 cures that. Once we got warmed up to each other would love to tour the Alps and Spain - hopefully this summer.
