I have a Pearl White DCT Tour and love it. Amazing machine. Only add on items are Honda backrest and Honda passenger arm rests.
I have talked to a couple of 6 speed owners and they are very happy too.

Have a gray bagger dct and love it more every time I ride it. Just shy of 8000 miles on it. Get 260 miles/tank in town, 275-290 on hwy. Great power and handling. GPS is better with updates, still not great.

At what speed on the highway and for what distance are you riding on the highway? Long rides or short rides?

Has that been all at once on the highway or broken up?
I ask as I ride cross country NH to Oceanside yearly, towing my trailer. Like to find out if there is enough savings on fuel mileage at 80 and above as most highway traffic is flowing at that.

I guarantee there will not be enough fuel savings to pay for a 2018 bike...... :mrgreen:

Not my line of thought.
Only as to distance traveling long distance because of smaller tank, bucking headwinds, towing camper and gear....
I've been down in the 130 miles on a tank or 2 staying with the flow of traffic to make time and distance.(not my preferred traveling)

Pulling the square box trailer in my Avatar, at 80 mph the range is about 150-175 miles depending on headwinds.

at 70 it gets about 32 mpg, it 85 it drops down to 25ish.
