Hello

Just joined this forum, as I stumbled across whilst googling.

I was lucky to get my Africa Twin in January, as I'd placed my order in November 2014, so got in early.

I traded in my 2013 BMW 800GSA, which was a lovely bike, but to be honest lacked any soul or character. The GS did everything I asked of it, and worked flawlessly, but I did have concerns about the quality and subsequent longevity of some of the painted parts.

Anyway, I've had many many, of what I suppose I should now refer to as the "classic" Africa Twin, and I have to say that the new one certainly fills its predecessors shoes perfectly.

I usually frequent the xrv.org.uk forum, and did a little write up of my first impressions of the new AT here... http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/africa-twin/142825-first-impressions-new-africa-twin-crf1000l.html

Hi Bob.
Welcome and great review of the AT.

Don't have mine yet, but the led lights on my MT09 Tracer were the
best lights ever on a bike i have owned. Hoping the honda ones are
good, but the MT09 seem a lot a lot bigger.
