After months of waiting and commitments from 3 different dealers that didn't get theirs my local dealer got one in today! It was a surprise allocation from Honda and just what I Wanted, a Black Tour DCT . Pick it up tomorrow. I never even ever rode one but after 45+ years on a Harley let's see how it goes. After I pick this one up in my garage I'll have a highly customized 2018 Harley Road King special, a 2022 BMW Transcontinental and now this. I told my wife by the end of the year I will sell one of them. I suspect it won't be the Gold Wing.....

I have the perfect ride for you. On Sunday May 22 we are having an RTE ( ride to eat) at noon at Bubs BBQ. The address is 676 Amherst Rd, Sunderland, MA. Perfect way to shake out the cobb webs, ride the new bike, and try out the Nav. Come one, come all.

Oh, I am so sorry. Congrats on your new ride. That is the color I would have chosen also. Not the trans, but the color looks so nice on that bike. That is definatly a Batman bike

An off topic question: How do you like the Transcontinental? Aside from the customary marketing hype (and the typical user forum fanboys) there seems to be very little enthusiasm for the oversized boxer twin.

You basically describe my dream garage with your fleet.

Any idea which of the two non-wings you might be selling if your wife doesn't forget she said you had to sell one? I say keep the BMW and have a flat-configuration theme going. The v-twin is the odd man out now :D

You are correct the crating would cost around $2000 but the dealer only pays that if they don't return it. I was in the equipment business for 40 years and when the crates went from wood to returnable metal everything got better and less wasteful

Congrats. I own 2 as well. Guess which bike got sold.

After buying the BMW Transcontinental I realized with the Jug placement there was no way I could get comfortable for 600+ mile days. So I told the BMW dealer I wanted a 2022 Grand America as well. They never called me back so I started looking and my journey brings me to the 2022 Tour DCT. In 3 hours I pick it up
