I guess many people do not know or understands DCT.
DCT has almost everything a shifter wants plus the automatic transmision with multiple modes.
Si, of you feel like shifting, you can shift manually, if there is a tricki situation where you need both feet on the ground, specially off roading step trails, then you go automatic!!
With the exception of clutch slipage, everything is there at your fingertips.
Best of both worlds!!
Good for DCT

Having ridden manual bikes for many years (last 2 bikes were Honda Varadero XL1000V and Triumph Tiger 1050) I thought I'd try DCT to see how I'd get on with it. I'm always open to trying new things and knew that Honda had been using DCT in their bikes for years already.

In August, 2017 bought a new AT DCT.
Loving it, along with its Auto and Manual options built in, and probably won't go back to a manual bike now. Anyway, manual bikes are so 'yesterday' LOL!

I went with a manual for a few reasons: dealer only had one left over AT on the floor and it was a manual, extra cost of DCT, extra weight of DCT and I'm not really fond of electronic type stuff on bikes. Even the manual one has too much for me. I would like to try out a DCT one day though to see what they are like, I think I'd really like it offroad since my clutch hand lacks any real finesse

2017 DCT and after a year and 17,500 miles I couldn't be happier with it.

Manual. DCT has more computer crap to eventually mess up. My opinion is keep it simple. The more simple, the possibility of less problems down the road.

I vary back and forth from manual paddle shifting to S1. I am liking the S1 setting. I is closest to how I would shift manually. However, in twisty roads I like manual and putting it into the gear I want and have it stay there until I don't.
