Don't own it, but put some miles on the SM/T. To me, it's a sport bike for grown ups. It rips when you need it to, but it's good for mile munching too.

DCT, and Porsche!!

Porsche doesn't even offer a manual transmission in their top end performance version 911-GT3. Their reasoning? "You couldn't possibly shift as fast or efficiently as this transmission".
