As an ancient (77) I was able to extend my riding years by buying a 2017 Africa Twin (DCT) and fitting McCruise. Wonderful 20k highwaymiles last year, many 400+ mile days.
From Yellowknife, NWT, to Oregon/California coast, to Pensacola, FL, US Rockies etc.
saves any discomfort in left wrist and fingers from clutch action. MCCruise
saves my right hand and wrist from always having to hold the grip while riding. No need to keep checking your speed. Holds set speed up the grades. Not upset by DCT gear changes.
I really value the MCCruise solution. Pricey, $900 including shipping from Australia, but worth it for me. It is now cheaper ($600?) for 2019 AT with fly-by-wire throttle.
saves having to crawl under the bike every evening.
Most of the time, riding with relaxed posture, with one or both hands resting lightly over the grips; often my right hand is off the bars. The AT runs straight without effort. I use knees to grip the tank for frame leverage.
Right hand is too busy with twelve buttons and switches. I count Parking brake, Up-shift, Traction control, Cruise Set, Res, On/off, Headlight hi/low/flash, Display select, Display set, Horn, Turn signals, Down-shift, and finally selector for Koso Apollo heated grips.
