When lived just outside London, every year me and the boys would ride to the Brecons and then up through Snowdonia, to speed a couple of days racing.... erm, I mean, riding around the fabulous roads you have up there.
I've done the off-road course with Dakar rider Simon Pavey in Wales and loved it - highly recommended. Fit some Conti knobblies and try to get a discount for riding the course on your own bike! ;-D
Anyway JOL, enjoy and let us know how you get on. Especially if you get the chance to ride Newtown to Builth Wells - or Assen in the Sky as I like to call it - best biking road in Britain IMHO.
Welcome from another Welsh owner.
Picked mine up last Monday (Storm Imogen). Rode it home in 50mph wind!
Hopefully get out on the weekend, get some miles on the clock, get the 1st service done then get the knobblies on.
Don't like to pick people up on vocabulary Captain Scarlet ...Iechyd Da to you too! ! ?
Welcome here and congratulations. It seems to be going to the supermarket on a day in the week and come back home with a bargain...
Bikes in stock apparently? I ordered end of Jan. and delivery will be end of March (I hope); Red one, DCT. Currently have a NC700X-DCT. What I have seen here, the red AT seems to be the most popular one.
Noticed that you have changed tyres from Dunlop TrailMax to offroad??? No offroad for me here, not allowed.
More forums: africatwin.org, advrider.com, but this forum may be the 'best'.
Red will probably be very popular in Wales! My brother's wife is Welsh and picked the red one straight away. My brother and I (English) both preferred the whiter Tricolour so that's what I've gone for - not that it had much to do with national colours though.
Seems to be fairly even split between white and red with the odd black thrown in. My dealer had all three in at the same time and the black is really nice and stealthy - but matt black and an occasional off-road foray seemed to me to be asking for trouble maintenance-wise!
Was only window shopping when a lorry turned up and they off-loaded the AT when i was there... I jokingly said if i can have that one tomorrow ill have it expecting to be told to *#*#OFF when the sales guy called my bluff and said "deal"
So less than 24 hrs later i was hooning around the roads and mountains on the beast.. so diddnt really have a choice on colour but quite happy with the red.
