    wind gets under the dash/headlight ackts like a sail and lifts the front at anything over 60 . Don't know if they have sorted it. was a year ago .

    We've just thrashed the blokes dct over on the iom & not noticed that issue.
    Cracking pcp price for 3 years rental tho...if it was the manual version I'd be seriously tempted for a 2nd bike.

    You need to test ride both of them. Out of 4 of us who are interested in getting one 3 of us prefer the manual to dct. But the other one loves his dct.

    I've got the manual and they're great bikes. The OEM Dunlops that come with the bike are really bad in wet or damp weather so you will need to change them but apart from that its a bike for all seasons on or off road. Never experienced the wind lifting the front like a sail.

    The downside to that deal for me is the 4000 miles per annum limit - that kinda bike should really be stretching its legs a bit further than that. I appreciate many folk would fit their biking comfortably into that limit though.

    Just moved on from the AT. Great bike from easy long B roads. I didn;t have the ability for off road, which she is built for. Did a 14 day euro tour covering 13 countries 7 5300kms. Prefer my Blade
