Manual for me because it was the managers special and i got a great deal. If it was DCT i would have had it though just the same. Regrets. None. Just done first service, gearchange has improved already with only a few hundred miles and its excellent. I chose a very good quality Castrol oil to try it out. Like the gearing too. Roughly 60 in first, 85 in scenond and about 110 in third means i can deal with any overtaking issue and have another three gears to waft about on.  :152:

DCT, but I keep a Beemer R1100 for the occasional manual fix. Both the  manual CTs I tried had super sensitive throttles but both the DCTs didn’t.

I am expecting a ratio like 7:3, in favor of manual. Lets see if I am off the mark.

DCT all the way here. One of the main reasons I bought the CT actually.

Ratio is just about 50/50 now.

I bought mine as it was a DCT.  I won't commute in stop and go traffic in a manual car.  Why does the bike have to be.

After After 1500 miles in under 36 hours, stop and go traffic in LA was not so bad....
Bikes are like women.  What you want and what you think you want change after the first ride.
