Hi,
And your honest opinion as a green laner.......and with the oem tyres ??

Hoping to run mine in (when I get it ) on the factory tyres then look for something I can tour some distance on and dive off road when the Tarmac runs out :))

If anybody has any ideas as what those tyres should be please let me know

Cheers

You have the taller touring screen as I see on the picture.

How does it perform w.r.t. the turbulance around the helmet. And what is your length?

I am 1,90m. The 1st AT demo will arrive here early March and then I will make e test ride to see how the std screen works. Reports indicate that it is very effective, but this all depends how tall you are. I ordered the AT with the std screen and will decide after the test ride if I will order the touring screen. Currently I drive a NC700X with the original Honda touring screen installed. Turbulance at the helmet around the visor. I installed an additional 10cm high spoiler on top of the screen and this moved the turbulance a little higher up. But there is still a lot of turbulance around the helmet. Standing on the footpegs on the high way and no turbulance, only wind. Sitting down behind the screen, also no turbulance of course.

As far as the standard tyres go, green laning is fine. Would clearly be better with something more knobbly, but for general use the bike inspires confidence with any tyre.

The wife may have been having a breather at this point - we'd been fairly sideways just before this......

I'm 1.85m. The screen does a very good job. Little turbulence for me, and my pillion reports little issue.

In another post of UK deliveries, you have said that you ordered 2 weeks ago a red manual AT. And now you are driving already? How is that? Demo bike?

Yep. The photo is the demo bike. The dealer had two. The one (a manual) and a tricolor DCT. I didn't actually try a DCT, mainly owing to the cost, weight, and lack of need. Reports are good for the DCT off-road, mind.....

I had a demo bike for the day with taller screen too, and it was pretty decent at speed, and not too much buffeting around my head - I'm 5.11
