    "Value" is definitely a super subjective measurement. Someone who only rides short distances in town in good weather is going to need a significantly different tire than someone who hits the track...

    Again, just my opinion and not meant to be a definitive definition, but:
    Does the transmission have the capability to automatically select the gear for you, or do you have to manually select the...

    Not exactly true, the D in DCT stands for Dual, meaning two clutches. One clutch handles odd numbered gears, one handles evens. The manual transmission has one clutch. The design and function of the...

    As a point of reference, I tend to do the backing of the bike without a passenger on, then have her hop on when we're ready to move forwards. Much easier to keep upright that way.
