Hello from north London. I picked up my tri-colour DCT last weekend. I've been riding for 20 years and it's my first Honda. I traded in my 2014 R1200GS Adventure for it. Very happy so far.

hi rupert

Had my tri colour DCT for the last 5 weeks just dropped it off for its run in service.
I like you had the same 2014 R1200 GSA and had enough of the thing being stuck in my local dealer with all sorts of problems from left hand switch gear , cruise control , ESA , to top it all new cam shafts at 7000 miles !!!!

loving the AT DCT can't wait to hit the Europe next month ????

Wow, quite a list of problems. Mine was pretty reliable - just fancied the more off-road focus of the AT. Wouldn't mind taking it to Iceland for a week or so.

Nice choice Rupert, I have the same one, I'm up to 3,500 + miles now with no problems apart from the corroding spokes, my new wheels should be arriving soon,

I fitted a set of Pivot Pegs with the optional plastic inserts the other day, they're a little wider and allow me to keep my heels away from the plastic heat shield on the exhaust, did a couple of hundred miles yesterday in north wales , proved to be very comfortable and solved my problem, that cover would have been nice in S/Steel ,

Enjoy your new bike :grin2: Graham,

Sounds like you were lucky Rupert, and got a BMW built on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Poor rusty got the Monday/Friday model... ;-)

Looking forward to your Iceland pics. :)
