    Really?  I'm sure the actual order date counts, but mine was ready end of April and they held to the agreed sale price as a matter of course (after letting me know how honourable they are !)

    I was just treated with a 'well, if you don't want to go ahead....' I pointed out to them that advertising a product at one price and telling you if you want to buy it then that price goes up is fundamentally dishonest. It was a shame as in every other regard they were great to deal with, and delivered the bike a month earlier than expected.

    Do it ! (setup user modes)
    You may well put it back mind - my User1 (my go-to, nearly always there mode) has EB=1 (most eb/least intervention)
    - My User2 however has EB=2 (I think) and it is easy to switch between them on the go.
    I only use those two now.

    I'll give it a go!

    Hi QMC,
    It took me ages to find the relevant pages in the owner's manual to set up User modes.

    Pages 72 and 73 to set up power and engine braking in a User mode.

    Page 78 to select the desired display for your User mode. I have used the Tour/gold screen for User 1. But you can select any of the three screens.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and great to hear you are putting on the miles on your NT too as it is a bike that devours the miles. Getting close now to booking my 2nd service and looking forward to seeing how the bike fairs as the weather gets worse
