Hi All, just swapped my faithfull old Honda Blackbird for a 2017 Africa Twin DCT. Looking forward to being part of the forum. Shes currently in hibernation awaiting better weather here in the uk. 馃槈

Thanks Dave, it's only done 1400 miles, apparently the last owner handed it back after his pcp finance term expired and hardly used it. Cant wait to experience the dct and let the bike do all the work. I've added the top box, tank bag and center stand. Hope to get up to Scotland if things ever get back to normal, take care mate and enjoy yours.

I am just reading all the reviews about different versions, I have come to the conclusion the givi tank lock doesnt scratch the tank and it user friendly, you got a bargain with that one ....

I've heard the magnetic ones do mark the tank after a while. Ive never had a tank bag before but think it will be very handy. Got the bike from minions in Derby last weekend. Not ridden it yet. Had a blackbird before so this will be very different.

Well shes certainly a credit to you, those cornering lights are a brilliant design feature too. I just sit here praying for an end to restrictions and an early spring. Planning a trip to Scotland if things ever get back to normal.

My riding buddy also has the AT, hes got a senna system. Was looking at perhaps getting one of those to pair up with his. Problem is I've spent up for the time being 馃槉
