I use D 0% of the time and S1 95+% of the time.
I find in S1 the DCT mostly works as I want it, but when I crank the throttle to overtake and it changes down to 4th, once passed it will hold it in 4th until it ascertains that the enthusiasm is over for now. So I crank the throttle, the bike goes down to 4th, I pass the slow car rather quickly, then I finger the up-shifter to return to 6th gear.
S3 is fun on a big section of twisties where you really want to have fun, fuel economy be damned!
Manual can be useful when you don't want the bike to change gear until you tell it to.
