Nice review which pretty much reflects my experience. There are a few things I don't quite agree with though...

1. It does pay to let the bike warm up a bit - I think we've all noticed that. But actually as it gets colder, below 5C, it starts to behave much better. There seems to be a nasty temperature range between 9C and 12C where the clutch is really grabby until the bike is thoroughly warm (my nerd is showing again  :155: )

2. I've hit the cancel button and had the modes flashing a few times (sometimes going for the horn in a close call) but never changed modes by accident. The chances of that are negligible - you have to select it, change mode on another button, hold "cancel indicators" down for what seems like ages and all with the throttle shut. How likely is that?

3. You can't strap stuff to the seat  :086: Yes you can! I do it all the time, there's four hooks in the wheel arch. Couldn't be easier with a cargo net or bungees  :027:

4. Tyres take time to warm up.  :008: :008: :008:
If I knew what I was doing I would probably stop doing it.
