Trip 1 and Trip 2
« on: May 06, 2013, 04:29:26 AM »
What items have you chosen to keep displayed on your trip screens (US SE model)?  I should be picking mine up this Friday and getting overwhelmed reading the manual.  Which things do you like to keep watch on while riding?  I'm thinking that profiles will be one up and one up with luggage, unless my weight qualifies as with luggage. 

Haven't found a place to download the radio information; at this point it would be information overload.

For the profile, my choice has been one up and 2 up. I'll use luggage only a few time per year while I will have often some with me.
For the display, for me it’s important to know autonomy in km and tires pressure.

I think that's part of the fun learning a new bike.  Try different things and see what you like, what works best for you.  Profile 1 is single rider, Profile 2 is single rider with luggage.  Trip 1 is: actual speed, tire pressure, trip miles. Trip 2 is: Fuel used, Range to empty, Average fuel consumption.

I keep mine simple. Miles to next fill up.

I'd suggest you just leave it as it comes and ride the bike and get used to it. Trying to figure it all out at the same time is a bit overwhelming. Then, on a wet evening, sit with the manual and set up the radio. Don't try anything else. Later sit again and play with the screens. Broken down like that it's quite easy. Just my opinion.

When riding two up, my wife keeps digging me in the ribs, telling me to watch the road and not to fiddle with the switches. Never had this problem on any bikes I have had before.
Don't grow up, it's a trap...
