After selling some of my Vintage Goldwings this week, I put together enough $$$ to pick up the AT/DCT today. But enough about me, the guys at H&W Honda in Marshall Texas bent over backwards to make it happen. Could not be happier, I rode a couple of miles before I pulled the trigger. That was enough to convince me. A whole lot of years ago I rode a Husqvarna 420 on the Texas Enduro circuit. Absolutely loved it but it had a few idiosyncrasies like freewheeling into corners. This bike had me at the start. Cannot wait to get in the dirt. But first, the accessories....center stand, panniers? Meh. I will read about the things you folks are doing and will catch up! Picture attached with wifely lovin' on the AT.

Congrads too! My DCT will be here 1st week of April. Wait seems like forever. Did you score a 2017 DCT?
Saved thousands over list. Accessories at cost, an amazing transaction!

You'll love the DCT.
Had mine since July last year and only clocked up 19,000km so far.
Still getting used to a DCT off road.
Went to a talk (Dave Moss) the other night on suspection and was told to put a longer spring on the rear shock, as the factory one is no good for two up riding or if you're over 100kg.
Also have a 1992 GL1500A (plus a trailer) that the wife and I use for touring around NZ.
Enjoy your new bike.
