Finally got weather to get out on my first ride this season.

I don’t feel like going for a ride today, said no motorcyclist ever.

I've still got 2 feet of snow between the bike and the road. :shock:
Aways put your brain in gear before you let the clutch out on your mouth.

I am envious with you west coast riders! We are just getting started here in the east.

Now that you have had a clutchless bike for a year, how would you say you like clutchless versus a clutched bike? A year of riding should give a well rounded viewpoint.

I really like not having a clutch. I do downshift sometimes, to let the bike slow down instead of using the brakes. Most of the time I let the bike do the work. I really have no complaints. OK, maybe one. The clear cover on the dash is a very soft plastic. It scratches very easily. I have ordered a protective cover from Tankslapper to put on it. That should solve the issue. I was out for a couple of hours yesterday, nice afternoon.

Thanks for the feedback, time provides a good perspective, I am really glad to hear clutchless is working out for you. :clap:

Ride safe!
