So, someone's finally found something a DCT can't do!  Thank goodness for that, those of us who've bought the good old fashioned version with a clutch can rest easy in our beds tonight.   :150:

That's after listening to final qualifying and the first two races from the Southern 100 which is about to start on www.manxradiott365.com

No he hasn't.....why can't he do it yet?.........because he hasn't tried it yet :305: 

You don't need a clutch lever to walk one up a ramp into a van as you can make it creep forward as slow as you want (just DON'T accidentaly tug the throttle)

There is no way I WOULD ATTEMPT IT ON A PICKUP TRUCK LIKE THAT THOUGH, he might have got it on there with the help of a tail lift but how the heck is he going to get it down again at home?

You keep persuading yourself you actually 'need' a clutch lever Ian while us DCT owners and pillions reap the rewards of our endeavours :063:

T'other Ian :150:

If there'd been a DCT anywhere near me to ride, I would have done so and found out what you lot are all raving about.  Meanwhile, I shall continue to be a luddite and enjoy it - well, I will from next Friday anyway!
