They say shutting it off will maintain your ABS setting but not your TC. Sounds nice a throaty in the video.

They seem to think no cruise control will be a detriment... ok LOL (McCruise FTW)

Scrolled through the comments to see he reported being 5'11, that should help riders here determine what riding ergo's will be like for them. I'm 5'11 so this is a perfect reference for me

I've read reviews now from people who are 6'4" all the way to 5'11 who say the AT fits them perfectly. Hard to believe.

The only true test will be when you yourself sit on the bike as we all come in different shapes and sizes with different size torso's, arm and leg lengths etc

I'm 6'2 and my knuckles drag on the ground sometimes ...I see people like erey who is slightly shorter with bar rises and a screen extension which makes me wonder, maybe he has shorter arms and a long torso ?

we're all built different. I read about a guy my size, 5'7 who said he had his feet flat on the floor...

Also, the seats are adjustable.
