The dang hi-beams. I keep hitting that stupid trigger and blinding everyone in front of me. What was wrong with the old rocker switch? This switch is in the way of normal shifting. Does anyone actually need this flashing feature? Perhaps in Europe on the autobahn.

Other than that, I'm trying as fast as I can to get to 600 miles.

Definitely most annoying for me is when i use the inidators, it sometimes engages the "riding mode" option

cheers

Yep, its the high beam switch for me... especially in good old UK winter gloves and if you use a vee wipe on your glove its even worse.

The other big problem is coming home after riding to work n back with a massive grin on my face and trying to tell the wife i've had a rubbish day :D

Easy for me to answer. The mirrors. I have tried every possible adjustment but can not see directly behind me. I have been riding for decades and have never had this problem. The best I can get is my shoulder and too far wide. Of course I constantly shoulder check but it would nice to see behind. Not a deal breaker at all because I love the bike. Just annoying. The high beam switch is mice nuts compared to this.

For me, the mirrors are a big improvement over the 1098, which I saw only my elbows. I force myself to turn around and check because I don't trust what I am seeing in the mirrors with all the vibrations...sort of makes me dizzy.

My next annoying feature since I have had more time on the bike, is definitely the paint. It scratches just looking at it. Why on earth would Ducati paint this bike different that any other bike out there on the market. As far as the fairings go, they look pink on the underside near the speedo and under the seat. Anyone else have this or is mine defective? Other than that, it is pure FUN.
