ETC The rear trunk warning is a pain and is actually unneeded as the trunk unlatched will not fly open unless the bike goes airborne. The Saddle bag warnings are good and have a proper function. On every GL I have owned I reach into the latch with a long screwdriver and bend the micro switch arms so no matter what the warning never activates so now I can even carry large items with the trump partially open.

yea, i know what you mean....over 10,000 miles and i still cant get enough. i was hesitant about buying a touring bike because i didnt think id ride it enough. my buddy told me, "buy it, youll make time to ride it"...he was right.

look up traxxion dynamics on youtube. max mcallister has a videos on correcting it and some other issues that may pop up.

There is a little fix for the center cubby, two washers under the screw in the picture and it works like it should have from new.

Robert Kinsey I weigh 270lbs the stock forks work just fine. The only problems I have are the trunk does not like to indicate closed and the compartment by your crotch is hard to open. They may need lubricated I have not got to it yet. I have put close to 4000 miles on it. I have bottomed the forks once by hitting a large pothole. That is PA for you. I love the bike. The price is a draw back though. The bike handles great.

bob2002 I would not have bought the new wing if the Traxxion suspension wasn't available but form your own opinion. I had to change the tie rod before 6,000 it was out of spec, replaced with the Traxxion tie rod,once and done. I aways figure on changing the seat ,windshield and handle bar setbacks no surprise there. I have no problem with the GPS, it takes me from point A to B no fuss.
The major flaw the DCT Tour model has is that it is habit forming with no cure known

The GPS apparently is set up such as it does not work with Android? am I right about that?
Here is the problem, Max from Traxxion , he has a product to sell. I guess anything can be made better but it's a touring machine, and set up for comfort and reliability
