Just to clarify, the front shocks have preload adjustment. Have heard on other forum that a pair of ohlins on the back really transforms the ride.

I've had the opposite experience with the dct. I leave it in sport mode exclusively. It is great in stop and go with no low speed difficulty at all. It makes stop and go tolerable.
