2017 Honda CTX700D
Hello dbyer58, and welcome to our forum. Congrats on your new toy. I guess at our age we do not need a super fast machine, just something to go places and bring lots of good times and rides. I prefer to ride it with the Sport mode since the Drive mode shifts too early as you said. Remember that even while using the Sport mode you can use the paddles to shift gears and adjust the ride to your liking. Safe travels amigo!
