    Thanks both , I'm well pleased some real nice features on the AT DCT , coming from a NC700X DCT which I loved this is completely new level , the gear changes are liquid smooth , and the display is loaded with info without being overwhelming , not got many miles on her yet but loving every moment , stunning machine

    Also seeing Bridgestone Battlax adventure rubber fitted made me smile widely

    Great looking bike. I'd be curious to see what you think of the tires. So much drama about the previous Dunlop tires on the 2016 bike (Honestly, I thought they were fine).
    Good luck with the new bike!

    I thought they were fine too for what they were, which was basically a 95/5 OEM tire. Maybe expectations were too high since they were put on an Adventure Bike?

    Probably a better contract with Bridgestone that gave Honda a better bottom line.

    True. OEM auto tires are often pretty much rubbish and for the same reason :)

    I liked them too. Did everything well except mud and loose stuff. Great for wet pavement too
