It’s prettier than the women who left you because you were a filthy beast, and immeasurably more reliable and satisfying, Honda’s new Africa Twin is full of automatic goodness. Yes, an Adventure bike that changes the gears for you. And do you know why? It’s better at it than you. No, seriously. But if you think its selection is wrong, then you can override it with your left-hand and a button. And clutches are over-rated and you’ll only burn yours out trying to get up that hill. So relax, the Africa Twin’s got you.
More dirt-focused, but even better on the tar, it’s got all the electronic sorcery you’d expect such a bike to have, and a bit more grunt so you can drift that back-end and people will think you know what you’re doing. So go and get your filthy beast on.

And riding motorcycles. He's pretty keen on that, too.
