This is a nonissue to me too. On my V-Strom, which can display the regular odometer instead of one of the trip odometers, I still always had it set to display the trip odo so I could see how far I'd gone since refueling. I came from bikes with no fuel gauges, so I long ago got in the habit of using the odo for that purpose, and on the V-Strom and now the Tiger, that didn't completely change. I still like to know how far I've gone on each tank.

The short odo display on startup is plenty for maintenance schedules, etc.
