don't think so, but who knows? The ESA button still there, so my guess is the ESA functions it's remain the same.

According to a two page report in today's local daily the multi controller is not only connected to the navi but also to a ride modes feature (4 different types), ESA and computer. It comes as an optional extra as does the LED headlamp and DRL and several other things.

If it's anything like the K1600's menu / jog dial, you press the ESA button and you scroll with the rotary controller to the setting you want, and then push it left or right to select that item on the menu.

Here is my list of names. Pick the one you like the best and let's run with it. Make it official right now.

1. Agua Strasse
2. Wassa Boxer (pron: Vass-ah Box-ah)
3. Golanda Wassa
4. Das Steam Vagon
5. Das Veener Sliden
6. Slicken-Zee-Dickens


OK, the last two are the anglo names I use for Vaseline, but it doesn't mean I can't use it for the bike too.

Thanks. Joey
I don't know, but the thought of it getting gummed up with mud, malfunctioning and needing replacement scares me! What will THAT cost!?
