Nah small cars are usually no bother tbh. You rarely see one of those fast Golfs who'd wanna mess. The regular small car can't handle to catch up once our bikes accelerate away. I only notice Audi and BMW mostly.

Like many above I am not really bothered about the top speed however I was impressed by the rideability of the AT at speed as shown in this youtube video https://youtu.be/j3GqtAwVlV8

I don't want to push the limits of tubed tires to be honest, and 100 mph is fine with me. Getting there is quick in any situation, what's more to ask for it's not a sport bike as you say.

I may in fact gear mine lower as I don't need all the top end speed, better to use the power fully on acceleration and have an easier time climbing steep switchbacks etc, stay in 2nd gear more, and so on.

Yeah, I don't particularly care what the top speed is either. I live in Japan, and the Honda dealer told me they are governed to 180km/h, but in all my years in Japan, I've never found anywhere that would feel safe riding at that speed, even on the motorway, so it's not an issue at all.

I'm pretty sure I saw the gearing specs and the DCT is geared slightly higher. Can anyone confirm?
