I think I have found a riding mode that suits me best.
I have a 2020 DCT model non adventure. My fav mode is Sport 1 in automatic.
And yours???

Mine 2019, tour, s1. So similar.
Full power, half engine braking, one off top torque control and s1 for higher shift point.
I am experimenting with least engine braking, to make trail braking into corners nicer.
Oh, and auto.
Only time I use manual is in 30. 40 mph speed limits. Stops it shifting around for no reason.

Agree, in city or slower speed traffic, manual is the way to go.
In auto S2 and S3, the shifting schedule is far too high, unless you are on the open expressways.
Give 'em all a try and then you decide what suits you best.

On my 2020 DCT. i prefer sport 2. on my 2017 sport 1 was perfect, but i think sport 1 on the 2020 is still a little lazy if that makes sense.

Like I said, choose the mode and performance level that suits you and where U are riding.
