I am curious about the riding experience with the DCT. I a heavily leaning towards the DCT version, but I wanted to ask if one can wheelie a bike with the DCT?

Not looking to start a stunt show, but if riding off-road one needs the ability to pop the front end up at times. Is it functional all the time, or does one need to disable the traction control / enable the "Gravel" mode to do so?

I used to have a 2009 Kawisaki Concours and it would wheelie until you couldn't hang on anymore, but a friend bought a newer version that would not allow you to disable the anti-wheelie at all. So I am wondering if the AT is similar?

I see videos on the manual trans bike has no issue with it.

Maybe this is a dumb question - how do you 100% disable traction control? Is that turning on "G-Mode"?

Hold the Traction Control switch until it turns off I think...

...or do you just tap it until all the bars disappear?

I rarely turn it off.. It is extremely good at it's job.. like me climbing this very very steep hill...

For me you just have to disable the TC. Can lift the front end even in Auto mode. It will power shift with the wheel off the ground!

I don't have to pin it by any means, just blurp the throttle up where the engine is making good torque, (3k RPM?)
