Hi Greg! Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome!!

Ah yes, welcome from sunny Florida, the land of 333 day riding seasons!! Now, let me suggest that you put your city/state/region in your profile (at least your state). Knowing where you are in general terms, helps readers of your future posts to have a "context" to draw on.

Since you are new to this forum (and their "mechanics" are all different!). Here's how to edit your Profile for your location:

1) Click on "User CP" tab in the upper right corner of this screen. If you don't see it, you are not at the top level. Scroll all the way up and it is just under the Search dialog.
2) Once on the User CP (Control Panel) page you'll see "Edit Your Details" click on the upper left side frame entry labeled "Your Profile"
3) Now scroll down to "Additional Information" & click "Location." Just put in your location at whatever level of detail you prefer (Country, Region, State/Prov, and/or City).
4) Continue to scroll down until you see "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page, click that and you are done.

Note, since most smart phones are not smart enough to allow you to perform the above steps with their truncated screens, you'll likely have to do it using your PC.

Again, welcome!

Thumbs up

Welcome! I rode thru some heavy snowfall once, going slow trying to not have to lean much on a mountain road. Tried to stay in other's tire tracks...sure glad when i got below the elevation where it turned into rain!
Note: as Honda says; with DCT, switch/"shift" to neutral before shutting off. Best Wishes!
