Hey guys, I traded in my 2020 CBR650RA when the dealer offered me a couple hundred less than what I paid for it brand new. In exchange, I moved up to the bike I always wanted, 2021 Africa Twin Adventure Sports DCT. I've been riding dirt bikes for as long as I can remember and always wanted an adventure bike to get a bit of both worlds. I picked it up with 2 miles on it a month ago and I'm already coming up on 400 miles. I've already put on Touratech crash bars and a Givi tank bag. I'm still trying to decide what panniers I want but that doesn't need to be decided until summertime haha.

I like it a lot actually, its super nice for general highway cruising and is pretty intuitive to get used to at first. I can count on one hand the number of times I reached for a foot shifter that isn't there.
I guess I will find out how it is off-road when the little bit of snow melts in the summer.

I have actually had a much bigger problem with constantly reaching for the non-existant paddle shifters on my KTM 690 Enduro than I have reaching for the non-existent foot shifter on my DCT ATAS :)

I never have a problem when driving the wifes car which is DCT but when I jump back into my Van I always stutter at the first junction as I forget I need to push the clutch in :D

Yeah, I recall that sometimes "steam engine" feel with the olde gear boxes.
