Bought my new Africa Twin two weeks ago, so far, so good.
First niggles,
Fuelling at low speed in town isn't great.
The Bridgestone tyres aren't great
Seat isn't great either.
Only niggles though, the tyres and seat can be changed and I just need to keep out of town ?
Great engine and ergonomics.

Welcome to the forum, is your bike '18? I didn't realize they came with Bridgestone tires. Agreed on the seat I find myself scrunched up against the tank and having to push myself back all the time. There are several seat options I'm going to start looking into something different.

Yes, the 2018 models come with Bridgestone tyres in the UK.
I tested a 17 model with the Dunlop tyres and thought they were ok.
The Bridgestones feel as if they are over inflated, (they're not) and feel a bit skittish, if you know what I mean.
Also, I found the 2017 seat ok too, so I wonder if the tyres could be the root of the problem. ?
