    Africa Twin
    Well I am pleased to say that I am rather impressed with the AT. It surges rather than accelarates, in leans rather than corners. You waft along rather than ride and you sink into the seat rather than sit. Admittedly I have come off a KTM supermoto but even so! The quality of the finish on the...
