TC off, MT, big handful in 2nd gear, rear preload left on max and easy... "Oh Hello!"
A pleasant surprise on a couple of occassions.
I seem to be developing a modicum of mechanical sympathy these days (on a bloody expensive, complicated bike is at the back of my mind I guess) so I take it easy in 1st. Plus DCT is slipping the clutch early doors in 1st.
I would say the manual gearbox is more the hooligan tool.
Nice pic Luke. Tres casual!
