DCT here - two thumbs up. At the ripe old age of 68 this is the perfect bike to get me out there.

Manual for me, however been considering installing the REKLUSE system for the best of both worlds. Has anyone gone this route?

Manual here. Never ridden a DCT, not really interested. Given a choice, I will take less computer control. Simpler, more reliable IMO.

Looks like the DCT is more popular going by the poll, more than 30%, not that that means anything

I'm sorry, I'm not an English speaker.
I meant to say that I was there to leave my wife's cb125 and pick up a 2nd hand sv600 for her, as he finally got her big bikes license.

Is not that we trade women for bikes here in Spain. Well, time ago during a trip in Africa some dude offered 40 to 70 camels for my sister in law.... At that time we didn't accept.

... Instead... perhaps... for the mother in law...

I turned 63 yesterday and I bought a brand new 2017 AT DCT at the Quebec City Moto Show. I had 14 manual motorcycles since the age of 17 and it was out of my mind that one day, I would buy something else but a manual. After having read this ''poll'', you made me change my mind. But I'm telling you, I changed my mind only when it came the time to fill out the papers with the dealer. Up to that time, it was a manual. I hope I won't regret!

I don't believe you'll regret it but everyone has their own opinion. If you miss the shifting, just put it in manual mode and you're in total control. I prefer Sport 2 myself most times. Still shift when it doesn't quite know what I want/need. Just play with it a bit and see what works for you. After you've ridden a bit report back on what you think.
