    Just following on from my last post I'm wondering what the break down is for crosstourer.com members that use Manual boxes and DCT.

    Manual for me all the way.
    I haven't tried the dct yet though and things might change, but i do like choosing when to change gear.
    Cos i want to be the boss, at least when  i'm on the bike.  :008: :008:
    keep it shiny side up !!!

    I have a DCT, best of both worlds in my opinion, you can change gear auto or manual with the flick of a switch, I now find it a bit of a pain changing gear on my other bike especially in town

    Manual for me.  I've tried the DCT and it was fine, but I just prefer a manual transmission (cars and bikes).

    Cheers,

    I ride a motorbike, not a big scooter.
