    Anyone ever hit the kill switch reaching for the cruise control while riding in the dark? Sure wish the controls were backlit. My Goldwing was a that's one thing I really miss

    Nope.  When you ride as many miles as I do a year, you develop muscle memory and don't have to look to where the controls are located. 

    I know them by touch.  Now, I haven't ridden the Trophy with winter gloves on yet.  We will see how that goes.

    I average about 30,000 miles a year    I still work full time or it would be 3 times that..   AND I STILL miss my back lit switches.. Going to install red led cover lights over hand controls
    A nasty weather day riding is still better than any day working

    Never occurred for me and I wear size 8 Held Air gloves in the summer and Triumph size small insulated winter gloves in the cold.

    I never use the kill switch, but accidentally switched it while fueling one time. It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out why the bike would not start.

    These are affordable and should solve your issue.

    I agree, back lit would be an improvement.
