I'd have to go with the manual version, but I am impressed with Yamaha's pushing the envelope with the AE. Good on Yamaha!

It does not look like we will get the non manual in SA until 2007. I will definetily consider getting the "auto"

... or at least introduce the system on a bike MADE for newbies, and let sport-touring folks get a taste of it, before they have to buy it sight unseen.


And 20valves, you can't vote twice... naughty!

I prefer the manual vs. semi-auto - no messy shell casings laying about...oh...clutches. Never mind!

No doubt I am wrong but I understand that there is a button to operate the clutch on the AS UK version.

Hey Liquid, good thing the manual shifting FJRA has the weight advantage, otherwise I'd get beat by the FJREL (quicker) shifters.

Eh Petey, without a clutch, you'd ride to Arkansas and forget how to ride your GS.
