Jim. Good choice with the DCT
It is a heavy beast, and you do get used to it at low speeds U turns etc after a while. I took mine up the Applecross pass this year ,loaded with wife and luggage and despite the tight switch backs ,I felt fully confident at all times with it. I still run the standard screen, but seem to have got used to the bit of extra wind noise, but I don't seem to suffer with any turbulence . If you search for a post from Veejay who came from a GS btw, on suspension settings. He seems to have hit the spot for a good few peeps on here, followed by a bit of a fine tune by the individual . There are a few members on here from the Lancashire side and the Welch borders who maybe up for a meet/ ride out. Wind and suspension aside, you have bought yourself a very capable stylish
bike that so far in its short history ,has no reliability issues
and enjoy your fantastic 'V' 4 .
