Hello everyone.

I'm a Brit living (for now) in Colorado, just signed up as I'm interested in the AT. Just nosing around and asking questions for now, will probably become more active if I actually buy the thing :)

Thanks guys!

I currently own a Moto Guzzi California 1400 Custom, which I've put bags on and am using as a road touring bike. Have done a couple of big trips on it out to California to ride the Pacific Coast Highway, as well as Route 66 from Chicago to LA.

I have a few trips in mind that may involve a few off-road sections here and there, hence my interest in adventure bikes. Why the AT specifically? A few reasons, but number one is that I like the idea of the DCT, especially for off road riding and commuting.

I also have a Honda CRF250L that I mainly use for commuting, but I'll probably trade that in when I get the AT.

Good call on the CRF250! Are you on any 250 forums?

I feel a little guilty about the CRF250L, as I only got it a few months ago and will probably sell it in a few months to get the AT. I mainly got it because a 1400cc Guzzi wasn't a practical commuting bike, but as the AT will handle commuting duties ok I can't really justify keeping all three.

It is a lot of fun though... I've mainly ridden big bikes, so it was really interesting to get the comparison of a 250cc. First time I lifted it off the side stand I thought it was going to float away compared to the Guzzi! :)

I'm probably not going to keep it long enough now to join a CRF250L forum, but I do think it's a fantastic bike and would recommend it to anyone!

Thanks! :) Like I say though, it'll have to go if I want the AT, so I don't want to spend any money on performance mods etc. for it at this stage.
