I am ready to buy a new Adventure bike ASAP
I just sold my 2016 DL650 ABS to a friend and I also had a 2003 DL1000, KLR's, KLX, a DR650 and a GS and KTM but the Africa Twin has caught my eye
However, the 2017 AT, Manual and a 2018 DL1000 XT have the same price tag at my local powersport dealers and the DL fits me a lot better and has Tubeless spooked rims, which is a real plus! The AT has a much better suspension with more travel, which is a real plus
I like the look of the AT, probably because it's a new and fresh look versus the DL1000 that to me, if I squint my eyes, looks just like my old 2003
Money is not an issue at all but I want to make a good decision and would like some sage opinions please.
I ride 99% on road, with a few gravel, country roads once in a while, at sedate speeds
