While I'd like to think I will become Charlie and Ewan, the realities of job and family will mean 2-3 small trips per year. So that means the other 99% of the time the bike will just be for putting around the neighborhood for mental health rides. Frankly, I could probably get a scooter and have a ball. I have no desire to bang out miles and miles on highways. Even my small trips will involve trucking bikes to places that are fun to ride versus highway miles, and those rides will be 50/50 road and light off road. Finally, I'm more of a "credit card" camper then a real outdoorsman. Given this, I think either bike will fit my needs...just trying to figure out which might be more fun. I'm a bit worried that the DS might feel a little tame compared to even my CR250 2stroke. But it's damn cool looking and a lighter bike. On the flipside, even thought the AT would be the DCT version...I would assume the bigger engine would still provide a lot of punch. Might just have to flip a coin.
