Have you ridden one? How does it compare to yours?
#1 I am completely content with my 2016. I have it set up exactly how I want. I am lacking nothing. However, I am at 61k miles. I do 20-30k per year.

More power - good, but I am happy with my 2016 power

5000 electronic adjustments- annoying

Gas tank issue on ATAS still there - bad, Honda is well aware of problem as well as the NTSB. This is why I am not in a hurry.

Electronic Suspension - not a fan, but improved suspension. I won’t need to customize until about 10k miles.

Reduced size of fork tunnel, better wind management.

Wow I could have lived my whole life without seeing that. I have seen several Harley based scramblers and desert sled type bikes. I always think they are kind neat and wouldn't mind trying one, but that thing is lost on me. :puke:

His review of the 2016 is what drove me to my AT. Seems like he is still a fan of the bike.

That new display and all those buttons seem crazy though.

Richard, I am pleading with you to put some real tires on your gal! That isn't right, she needs to feel like she can get dirty without slipping on the dance floor.

I replaced my stock tires pretty quickly. I find road tires off pavement sucks, but more aggressive tires are fine on pavement. I also got repeat pictures in my stock rear tire...

That is what I put on my 2016 AT, but it is a PIA to install, you have to remove the tank and air-box. It works perfect, just not simple to install.

Someone has another device, not the booster plug that does the same thing, but connected into a dongle on the AT under the seat from what I remember. It is an electronic version that does the same thing. For the live of me I can't remember what it was called or who makes it... :(

The BoosterPlug made my AT into a trials bike compared to the twitchy stock ones, they are so lean the blubber right off idle. Also eliminated any backfiring too.
