One item I forgot to mention on the comments about the trip to the US. I ran the moto in D mode all except for maybe 25 miles. I have gotten to the point that I use the shift buttons almost without thinking about it. It has become second nature so to speak, the same way that I would shift up and down with the manual transmissions, except better! I did notice after arriving home that I have far less tire life left than I thought! I may have to buy tires here in Mexico, which means I will probably be limited to Shinko 705s! They would have been my second choice in the US, I actually want TKC70s. I was expecting 12,000 to 14,000 from the tires, but it looks like 10,000, maybe 10,500 will be the maximum, especially for the rear. However, all but 600 miles on the moto has been two up and loaded. I am in the process of doing the 8,000 mile service. No issues found. My step daughter and I rode to Cuernavaca yesterday for lunch and looking for places with big moto tires. Only had a mostly empty trunk. We rode 160 miles, almost all of which was in the mountains with constant curves, inclines and declines or in town, so I was on and off the gas a lot. I tried to hold the moto to 60 MPH, more over a bit than under. It got 54.3 MPG.
