That's the button that toggles which of three functions (info displays, heated grips, windshield) are controlled by what was the windshield up/down switch.

As I said, your thumbs and left index finger will need some re-educatin'.

Personally- I'd have rather put the menu button somewhere else and retain flash-to-pass where everyone expects it to be. Because now I'm going to spend a lot of time pissin' off other drivers when I ride any other bike I own- even the KLR has aftermarket switchgeear with a flash-to-pass. trigger.

Many years ago, the feds made standards for all the basic stuff (somehow, some HDs and some BMWs are different?); would seem reasonable to have standards for the more complicated controls.
