Hey welcome to the site, glad to have you! We've got a few inmates already.
How do you find Honda's DCT, I've never tried but heard good things?
I'm not one of those have to be first guy on the block with (fill in the blank) but I am getting to an age where riding safely is more important than riding for thrills. So for me, the dual clutch transmission is fantastic. I started out thinking that not having to devote attention to shifting allowed me time to focus on the road, the ride, the hazards and enjoy the ride more while being safer. As a senior rider, those are valuable considerations (probably for beginning riders too) that are justification enough for having DCT.
But eventually using DCT became entertaining in it's own right. Depending on the road, the conditions, my mood and who I'm riding with, I may leave it in no-brainer D(drive with super quick up shifts for fuel economy), switch between D and S (sport - where the computer shift points are like normal riding shifts) and mix it up with manual shift intervention as needed. Or I might stick it in M(anual) where I control all the shift points. Also, because I couldn't get used to using handlebar mounted paddle shifters, I installed Honda's accessory foot shift lever kit to take advantage of 50 plus years of muscle memory and let my foot do it's thing. Much more fun too.
But automatic transmissions on motorcycles are not for everyone. I've invited a few gnarly old rider friends to try my bike out and after a short ride, they all say DCT is "interesting". Damned with faint praise, I'd say. But if you can't take a test ride on a DCT equipped bike and buy one anyway, I think that as long as you are willing to work with the system and make it "yours", you will love it. Cop an attitude about how automatic transmissions aren't manly and you'll hate it. (Yeah, there's a lot of machismo involved in motorcycle riding that can get in the way of a person's enjoyment.)
