New to the AT after riding for many years (with a 25 yr break). Enjoying the exploration of the many county roads in the Sierra's. What a fun bike! Big, heavy and a little intimidating but certainly has all you could ask for. Just ordered a Corbin as my old butt couldn't handle the stock seat. We'll see. Looking to get bags next. I have certainly noticed a deterioration of skills and getting used to the higher ride of the AT is slowly coming.
