Nice one!

DCT or manual? Any options?
I went for the manual version + centre stand/Touring screen/rubber foot pegs for TW!
Didn't bother with the OE Panniers I thought they were seriously crap! very flimsy is not the word,so don't know which way to go for luggage.

I imagine everyone will get the centre stand - well, I'm going to get one if I buy it that's for sure.

I'm torn over the panniers - they have an appeal in that they are relatively voluminous yet sit in tight to the bike. And they don't look that bad. But they don't feel great at all - real bit of cost cutting there. I wouldn't feel entirely safe leaving anything in them whereas I would in some other panniers.The top box is just plain awful and ugly. A real chance missed by Honda there IMHO.

Hi, I just joined myself, I've gone for the tri colour option as well but was tempted with the black hope I made the right choice. I won't be getting the panniers either, they don't do the bike justice......I've got the ARD cases on my explorer at the moment which are very robust and reasonably priced, i might see if there is a way to fit them on to the AT.

The panniers look ok Davy, I've not ordered them either, so I'll wait and see how well they're made, do they expand, can you get a full face in them ? if so they may be worth getting,

I did go for the panniers, I don't think they're that bad. Plus no scaffolding when off the bike and reasonably low cost.
Hi Davy F,

can you get two full face helmets in that case on the left? I think one at the right it's not possible due to the size of that one...

I think those panniers look ok with the bike BUT not having the possibility to put two helmets in those panniers do not make me happy....and the top case is ugly as **** (IMO)

Cheers,
Antonio
