When I was riding 12-15k/year (for 15 years) of hardcore twisties, I was getting some serious nerve issues in my clutch hand.  It's not as bad now because I have less time to ride, but I still have nerve issues.

Things like DCT and quick shifters will extend my riding career 👍

Extend the miles, too. I am surprised how much fatigue you stave with a quicker/blipper. It isn't trivial in the slightest.

Clutches are for stopping only.

Tapping the rear brake works better for that. Mine will rev a extra 1000 rpm before the cruise disengages if I pull the clutch.

Ahh, shame. I don't have to hardly tap mine at all. Don't hit the clutch springs before the micro switch trips the ceuise. The Whale was the same way. That will teach you to buy an Indian.

      Very comfortable 600 with 3350 miles, well maintained, garage kept, new Dunlop Roadsmart 3s at 2700 miles this spring. Regularly washed and waxed. All fluids/filters changed last fall, oil just changed again this spring. Smoked windscreen, sequential integrated rear turn signals/brake light, rear spools, and USB power outlet. Needs nothing. Asking $3900, selling because I'm going to be traveling for a while and don't know how long it'd be sitting in storage.

      Wanting to buy a 2015+ Kawasaki Vulcan S, ABS or Cafe trim.
      I'm located around near Boardman/Canfield area (NE Ohio), willing to travel but not really wanting to drive a couple hours.
      If anyone has one of these for sale or knows of someone with one for sale please send me a message! Thank you!

      Here is your chance to own a championship winning OMRL race bike! Been thinking I would get a chance to get back on the track but with my son and everything else i have going I don't see it happening anytime soon so instead of this sitting it mise well go to someone that will use it. It will probably need a carb clean but not sure. It will go on other sites for $1,700 tomorrow. OR no haggle you come and give me cash and i give you bike price is $1,500.
