Hello everyone,

This is my first time posting on the forum. I'm thinking of saling my Honda Shadow 750 for a CTX700 Fairing with Auto. I 'm really liking the idea of automatic bike, because I'm usually have to seat in traffic about 2 hours a day. I'm just taking a poll have, but do you think this is a crazy trade off?

I don't know. I think that having to constantly shift/brake/downshift/etc helps to keep you aware of traffic, and alert to the inherent dangers of riding a bike in traffic. If you want the auto, than sure.

My wife went from an 09 Shadow Aero 750 and loves the CTX700 with fairing. She did not get the DCT but I have not seen any here with negative comments. The seating position is similar, in fact they have the same pegs.

I don't think you are crazy at all. I have all intentions of getting the DCT version. For a start I kind of like the gadgetry of it, and will ride in manual mode when I feel like it (I do this in my car too), but when I am commuting to work in heavy traffic I will use auto. The best of both worlds, oh and the DCT is faster 0-100kph for those red light dashes.
I do wish however that they had given us a "fake" foot shifter for the auto that we could use for gear selection.
