Africa Twin was on my short list of bikes but my short arsed legs just couldn't cope with it. I needed a step ladder to mount! My Ducati Multistrada is bad enough and I have to be careful not to put my foot down on the downhill side of any slope or it gets embarrassing fast.
Oooh. Ducati Multistrada. Nice bike :thumb:

I'm in the market for a new steed next year. I have a test ride booked next week to take out the KTM 1290 Adventure S, a bike I have been interested in for a while, and one that will replace the Bavarian Mudslinger in the New year. I have read this review several times now and thought I need to give the bike a try. So in the meantime I took the big Honda Africa Twin (DCT) out for a test ride today. I have to say I was impressed with the big Honda, I liked the smoothness of the DCT and the ergonomics of the bike were just right, I liked the bars being that bit closer to my body and couldn't believe how comfortable it was to ride. Anyhow this has now thrown a spanner in the works, if the mighty KTM doesn't come up trumps next week, and I resist a test ride on a 1250GS, It might just be the big Honda for me. :? :shock:
