They make an Adventure without MTC? Or you turned it off?

Yeah the latter, I turned it off. My only other experience with a liter bike was an 1150 GS, which was quite heavy.

Yeah, you have to be stationary to change those settings. And frond does come up in third gear.

I was on the fence for quite a bit, rode a bunch of bikes, and even the day I went in wasn't sure if it was the right bike. But no doubt in my mind now. It's an amazing machine!

My gsxr1000 wasn't that touchy on the throttle. It wouldn't come up in 2nd gear unless you really wanted it to.

The upright body position taking weight off the front wheel helps too.
