    I'm on my motorcycle vacation in Colorado Springs and today while riding I noticed a icon light up on the TFT display that I haven't seen before. I was going to take a screen shot with my cell phone but when I stopped the icon disappeared. It was a red circle and had what looked like a speedometer needle inside the circle and the number 62 under the circle. Anyone know what this icon indicates? I don't carry the owners manual around with me so I have no way to look it up. I also noticed the oil light was momentarily white instead of green. I drove 1800 miles from PA and I have another 7 days of riding left so I'm hoping this is just a glitch in the system but want to be certain so I'm not stuck on the side of the road halfway up MT Evans.

    Any chance you enabled speed limit indications ?
    I played around with my TFT today and found that option.
    Did the Icon/warning stay sticky until you stopped?

    I don't think I enabled any speed limitations since I wasn't playing with the wonder wheel while I was riding but it's possible and the icon did disappeared as soon as I stopped and didn't come back on. The circle did kind of look like a speedometer and I was going around 62 mph when I noticed the icon so you may be right. Thanks

    Thanks but none of the icons pictured look like what I saw on my display. I think ck-cbass is on the right track.

    It's the cruise control icon.

    Red indicates cruise control is On but not currently in use. The number is the last speed it was set to. Turns green when you hit set or resume.

    If it was cruise, I’d recommend reading the manual front to back. You might have missed something else along the way.

    I don't know why this reaction is so funny to me; I can't stop laughing & I'm at work.

    I am notorious for quick start guides only. But just sometimes you HAVE to RTFM!

    I've used cruise control and never noticed the icon but now that you've brought it to my attention I did have cruise control active but wasn't using it. Thanks to all that tried to be helpful and posted useful information.
