Reaching Sant Gothard Pass, by the Tremola road

During my trip by the Alps I had the opportunity to discover this amazing road.

Call their 1-800 number and speak to a rep...I did this myself and am trying to get others to do it as well!

Yep. .. made the call recently myself.

To quote murdocks other post on how to do so:

Yesterday afternoon, I went to the Honda USA motorcycle website, got the customer support number (866) 784-1870 and called. I chose the option "0" to speak to a customer service rep about a "other"topic, and asked the man "when is Honda going to bring the Crosstourer to the USA finally?" His response was there were no plans, but if enough people would call and express interest in the Crosstourer DCt. it might in fact happen. He took my name, phone number and email address and stated he would submit a "customer inquiry/recommendation"

After riding the DCT and being totally underwhelmed by it, I would recommend anyone who's able-bodied to request the standard Crosstourer. I don't think the performance of the DCT merits losing the fine control afforded by a conventional manual clutch and transmission.

No "fine control" is just poor throttle control on a DCT gearbox.

Installing an FG Gubellini front springs and rear shock has transformed the XT from a great bike to a superb beast

Sorry, I mistakenly overstated the price by a $1,000.
