Hi guys and gals,

First off, wanted to express our sincere appreciation towards you for being apart of this great forum. We're not a corporate run forum, don't run ads and work hard at providing the community with fresh content. Please help spread the word and keep posting!

We will possibly be at EICMA 2017 this year but that is still tentative but are a definite go for the 2017 Long Beach Motorcycle show. What would you like us to cover? I know we're a Honda Africa Twin forum but lets face it, we love all motorcycles. We'll definitely cover the 2018 Honda Africa Twin, Yamaha T7 (if it's available), KTMs and gear.

Tell us what you'd like to see and we'll do our best to make it happen. Thanks again! Ride safe.

SoCalEddie

I am most interested in the 2018 AT. With BMW and Yamaha coming out with new models hoping Honda adds a few updates making my decision to wait for the 2018 a good one.

I will be curious if Sena has the 30K mesh intercom system ready for the show. If so, I would be interested in some coverage of that, since I will likely upgrade from our 20s units :)

Noted @Cuchulainn. Will scope out Sena if they are there this year.
Thanks! I saw their name among the sponsor list, so assuming they will be. The 30K has been “coming soon” for quite a while now. I think longer that “soon” would imply :)

My wife and I have been using them for a couple generations now over the past 8 years or so. Looking forward to some info and maybe hands on of the 30K :)

@SoCalEddie Would you guys mind checking out Klim riding gear? In the market for a new adventure/enduro type of jacket and on the fence about it because I don't want to look like a storm trooper. Haha.

Some (my Triumph riding buddies) say mine is the Darth Vader kit since it is the orange/black KTM co-branded Klim Badlands.

It was a great deal though at the low low cost of free for the jacket, pants and gloves as part of a purchase promotion KTM was doing in 2014.

Kind of like the new Honda Africa Twin stuff that Klim is now doing, except I believe the Africa Twin stuff is Latitude rather than Badlands and Honda isn’t giving it away free :)

Have seen most of the 2018 details by now. But your impressions based on you actually seeing the 2 models would be appreciated. Maybe you can find out when Honda will accept orders and begin deliveries in the US. Mainly interested in the standard model.

@dascooter Excellent points. We'll keep that in mind as we're asking questions with the Honda Press folks. Will keep everyone updated.
