Could be even more expensive on a Duc or other bike depending on how hard you zing it!? I prefer standard because I ride a lot of dirt bikes and don't want to make a mistake.

I Ride: like I need lessons!
I have standard on the FJR, and GP on the R1. I go back and forth between bikes quite often. It's no more difficult than swapping between an automatic sedan, and a 4-speed truck. Perhaps a little mental preparation just before rolling out.
The local experts (aka everyone at Starbucks) think it's a bad idea to have to deal with both. "What if you're in a panic situation and miss a shift?" Well, I guess I'll find out when it happens. So far, my panic situations have never involved shifting gears. it's been either a hell of a lot of throttle, or a fist full of brakes...+cussing and a prayer.
