Hi Steve...Ive gone for the manual, as I'm not sure about the DCT at this moment, and also the cost was over a grand more...I think I much prefer the manual control, and was very happy with the feel of the gearbox and clutch

Nothing wrong with the manual, did you have a go with a DCT? as you have full control over the gear changing, if you wish to.

I never tried the DCT either. Might be that I'm old school....who knows. I'm sure the DTC is a good bike though:)
What do you mean it's raining....get ootside and ride the thing.

You won't miss what you don't have although DCT  is the future!
The CT is an Awesome machine outperformed by no other. Congrats on choosing a Crosstourer. Nice to see someone with discerning taste not opting  for for the usual "Chewan" choice  ;-)
