... snipped ... However the ride is not as cushy as a Silverwing or a Burgman. 

Not sure if you mean cushy suspension or cushy seat for your tushy!  With my SWing, I find I slide up towards the front of the seat and do not find the SWing very comfy at all.  I've tried an Airhawk, beads, sheepskin and I just picked up a Corbin seat so that'll be next.  The Burgy 400 was much better seating wise.  Suspension wise ... well .. they do have smaller wheels.

... snipped ... As far as the chain goes I installed a Chameleon automatic chain oiler and just give the chain a good wipe occasionally if it looks too grungy.

OK ... I've yet to look into automatic oilers but that sounds like a possible solution.

... snipped ... The DCT does shift differently than a CVT, just feels different.  Mileage has been great, almost 70mpg.

Great mileage ... certainly better than I currently get with my SWing.  In the reviews it talks about the DCT's tranny hunting for the right gears in hilly/twisty roads.  They also say it shifts very quickly and shifts to higher gears quickly. Have you noticed this and has it caused you any problems?   

... snipped ... Hopefully they have installed the center stand and floorboards. If not both are highly recommended. Center stand for cleaning and maintaining the chain, floorboards for comfort.

Thanks for pointing this out.  I've read similar comments from others on-line and having had center stands with all of our previous scooters and floor boards with the Big Ruckus, I totally get it.

I appreciate all your feedback.
