The rear seat is the feature I like least. But it get used nearly as much as the rider seat. Even when there’s a section of unpaved roads on the route, the GF wants to come. Bloody Harley and their passenger comfort.

Guess I'm goin with the angle/turn light! Although I like the idea, some have said they had issues with other road participants and to me it turns on/off too quickly... I think the time/money spend on it the MoCo should have just added aux lighting instead.

The small sidestand ,jiffy stand , kickstand !! that feels like it will at any moment break when mounting the bike from the pegs also when centerstand in use the damn thing can,t be kicked out pardon the pun.
Yep I totally agree that kick stand design is weak from the tiny locating tab, to the insignificant footprint when off road, to the fact that the center stand and the jiffy interfere it’s each other.
I believe it must be nepotism since my bagger kick stand design is a ...😕
Yep gotta rock it before you get off.

Yep. Kick stand and the intermittent turning lights. I get that the kick stand is an engineering limitation due to all the possible ride heights but there had to be something better for mounting etc.

And it's an odd one ... but if there was an option to go with the keyless fob, or a regular keyed ignition I would 100000% go with the keyed ignition.I feel like 75% of peoples problems go back to the fob / battery. I would be surprised if they release another one and don't overhaul or option that.

Also, maybe its just me but the turn signal switch is clunky.

Also, the rear turn signals not being running lights. Why?

Android Auto works perfectly on my 21 RG but there is no handy solution with the PAS. I bought and toyed with a separate device for the sole purpose of syncing my phone and not having to mount it to the bike. It looks great and the phone connects but the HD/Sena 30k headset just won't sync with a third party device. So I'm returning that device...and have been uploading a number of trips on the HD App until another solution emerges. I'll keep an eye out here as this forum has helped guide all of my purchase decisions.

The map app sucks! I'd rather use the internal maps gps on my 14 Ultra, than the app. I have six that the map app sucks? Will it does.
Put an on board system, and it could be used as a gps Locator "finder" when my PAS gets stolen.
When bad folks find out how great a bike it is ... 20 seconds, a truck, and two chit heads... gone.

The map app is garbage. I'd have the dealer flash the navigation page off my bike if it was possible. There isn't a single circumstance or use case that justifies me installing the app and providing HD with telemetry data while getting less functionality than from my phone.

Front fender is useless at protecting the radiator. The accessory optional guard is flimsy, restricts airflow more than better designs, and makes thoroughly hosing out the mud that gets past it tedious at best, if not impossible depending on what sort of mud.

There is a few bolt onto the exiting pedal options but I personally am not a fan. I adjusted all of the play out of my pedal so that it engages the rear brake with much less throw than the way it was set up from the factory.
I cut the PA’s janky pedal off right where the stem meets the brake arm. My ergonomics and posture inevitably manages to inadvertently ride the actual pedal on the highway, so it got looped off. My dual sport has left hand rear brake, and no foot brake, leaving my right foot free to roam, dodge logs, and drag the track while braking. With the exception of that last perk, cutting the PA’s pedal off let’s my right foot behave the same on two of my three bikes. I just untuck to slow down on the Honda CT110, no brakes required 😄
