I have recently had two women I know, both married get really excited that I have an AT.
'Oh!! an Africa twin' and a weird lustful look in their eyes. My wife likes the bike and agreed with the other womens.
Should we keep this a secret benefit of AT ownership.
I have never had a member of the opposite sex react to a bike quite like that.
I felt like some cool old rocker on his beezer at the cafe.

I know a woman that can't tell the difference between a black AT & a black Dominator ! :(

So as long as we stay with black................... life will go on, and new bikes can keep on comin' along ! :)

(she doesn't much like my transit either ?....... so no need to be looking inside it I say :thumbup:)

I have a pumped out chromed out VTX1800 one of a kind and no body cares about it , but when I'm waiting at the traffic light on my beat up African I get all kinds of questions left and right .
Sir what do you do if you have a flat tire asks georgeous Latina while playing with her hair . Is it one of those European bikes asks her girlfriend . Must be the twin headlights LOL :)
The magnet indeed ...

So say to the Laydeez I have a VTX 1800, they will probably think you have disease.
Maybe the two headlights remind them of the speccytwat in the school library.
it is indeed weird. the AT is not horny, fast or aggressive ok it is a handsome bike. Maybe that's it?

VTX gets compliments at the gas stations , but is a conversation killer . Older fellow comes up to me : "nice Indian , my neighbor had one exactly like that". It's a Honda VTX1800 Sir. Fellow goes "uhhh" . Conversation over... oh well
Africa twin on the other side : "What is this thing ??? I never seen one like that !!! Can you go off road with it ???"
Me cool... :glasses7:

Can't say I'm fighting the girls off when I'm out on the bike, but it does get a fair amount of attention when I pull up at the H cafe or bike shops. Old bikes in general get a fair amount of attention anyway, the new ones all look the same. I also love the double headlights!

My missus much prefers the look of my ex AT to the RT I bought to replace it...The RT does have the face of a cow though;)

RT, RT?
Just google image searched RT.
Terrifying. Then guessed BMW RT? not terrifying, but still has not got the looks.
The AT is a damn handsome bike. Ditto RC30, early Fireblade must be twin round headlamps.
A classic look.
Edit, twin round headlamps on Hondas.

I have to say, I have always found the AT to be a very sexy bike, especially the RWB RD04s. There is something iconic and exciting about them. I've always wanted to own one but my legs are way too short. However, it's the bikes that I lust after...:D:D:D
