Tell us the story! What pushed you away from the Tenere/toward the AT? New? used? Dct or manual? Without the info and picture, we won't beleive you.

Sorry for delay, log in problems. Went to my local dealer, Ecosse in Aberdeen, to test ride the Tenere and a Cross tourer, the Cross tourer didn't feel quite right so just tested the Tenere which was brilliant. All prepared to do the deal I went back to the dealers just as their fully loaded demo AT was being offered for sale, decided to test the AT and, despite sideways rain and cold fell in love with how it felt. Somehow it just felt more responsive and solid compared to the Tenere. Ecosse gave me a good PX on my Pan European so I was a very happy chappie. I also have a Triumph Explorer so it will be interesting to compare the two.

As soon as possible I will post my thoughts on my new AT and my Explorer, however I think that I may have to have the AT surgically removed before that happens !

AT won't be used off road at all ( unless by error ! ) and used for riding around the north of Scotland. Group of us usually do a weekly run out for lunch covering 300 miles or thereabouts. Each year we do a trip abroad for 3 weeks, France this year, Norway and the Arctic circle the year before.

AT is red, white and blue, in my opinion the best colour scheme ☺
