So I'm tooling around on my Ultra and notice my display has changed to "R" meaning "distance remaining". WTF? Push this, push that, where's the goddam toggle? Must have eff'd around with it for 20 minutes. Nothing.

Two days later, get off the bike, look at the left-hand grip and there's a button. Wonder what that's for? Toggle for ODO/Trip and stuff.

Idiot!

No, I didn't refer to the manual. It's on my nightstand and I was in the garage.

Ain't it funny? We buy a $500 table saw and we'll read the manual cover to cover. We buy $30,000 bike pr car loaded with electronics and half the time we don't even know where the manual is.

At least you did not bring it back to the dealer and tell him it was broke.

Chistopher Columbus needed no directions. Neither do I.

Hahahaha. He didn't know what "the button" was for either. He thought he was in India!

I don't read the table saw manual until after I've lost a chunk of meat. Flip pages with one hand and hold the tourniquet tight with the other.

It is without a doubt the most hidden switch on anything I ever driven or flown. for bout the first 1.5 of the 2.5 months I've had my SGS I had to really think about where the damn switch was.

It's that thing that came with the bike, you put it under the kickstand to get the bike to stand up strait for pictures.

Yeah I just figured out what the toggle switch under the windshield was for the lights beside the headlights Duuh.

I hate that odometer switch.

When I bought my 14 FLHTK it took forever to learn that the cruise control is now on the left side... And my odometer kept resetting on its own, until I realized I've been fat fingering it with my left index finger.

Maybe now that I've gotten used to the 5-way joysticks on the Ultra Limited I can finally attempt to play Xbox.

If I read the manual, I can probably figure out how to switch from missiles to guns :)

The only thing I can play on XBox is Tiger Woods Pro Tour. It only involves three buttons. Other than that, it collects dust.
