Oh I’ve used it too, but for most of my riding I don’t like/want the short shifts and to be in 6th gear at 35mph jerking along..

With a few more miles and experience you'll understand how you can ride around this.

Interesting, so you are saying that you’ve found a way to stop it from automatically shifting into 5th gear at 35mph in drive mode. Cause so far the only way any of us (that I’ve seen) to stop it from doing this is to use sport or manual.
Like I said, in places where the speeds are 45mph or better, yea drive mode is usable. Granted doing 50mph in 25 & 35 zones would be a “ride around”....
