Came across this excellent comparison between the CT and Exporer. It does not offer a definitive "winner" except to say that they are both winners but it highlights the off-road capabilities of the CT where 'accepted wisdom' loves to reiterate adnauseum that the CT is no dirt bike, ha, watch this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMxUB...e=results_main

This youtube clip reinforces my earlier assertion that the better rider will always be quicker whichever bike they are riding but in this clip we have two riders of obvious differing riding abilities so it is interesting that the younger guy (and quicker rider) swings toward the Honda while the older guy, more interested in comfort, reckons the Explorer is the go. Horses for courses?
