Hi all,


New member from Rockhampton, Australia. Thinking about buying the AT so decided to join this forum to get the lowdown from owners of this bike. Can't find any demo bikes yet in Aus, so may be a while before I can test ride one. Reviews look promising, but journalist reviews rarely give bikes bad reviews. Looking forward to participating in this forum.

Hi, I'm from Brisbane and ordered a tri colour DCT at the end of December. My dealer Pro Honda had a pre-release press bike on display for a short time today. Seems that the bike is doing the rounds of the dealers as it was on its way to Toowoomba this afternoon. It was a silver base model (non ABS). Looked great but I didn't like the silver colour.

The sales guy said they were expecting one or more demo bikes in about a week and the first stock a week later. Looking forward to mine becoming available.

A quick shout out to everyone interested in an Africa Twin in OZ. I visited Top Gun Honda in Ipswich today who had an Africa Twin there for only an hour. The bike looked and sounded amazing. Even more impressive when seen in the flesh. I ended up ordering a Tricolour DCT. Went a DCT because of smooth changes while 2up touring (no helmet clash) and I liked the fact that if your in the slow, sandy snotty stuff, your feet can be off the pegs ready to 'catch' the bike yet still change gears. Let's also remember it is almost impossible to stall. As for the extra 10 kgs for the DCT, I weigh only 74 so with that in mind the bike should still have plenty of up and go. They say the bike will be a few weeks away.

Keep the shiny side up!
