I can see the issue with SM style riding, but that's a long way from how I ride on the street!
I've been riding my 990 in places and conditions that I really have no business even being NEAR; I'm short, old, and weak, and the Rekluse really does make that much easier. Yes, when the bike is cold (or even cool...) it grabs and chatters but that's fairly easy to overcome with the lever and it's only when it's cold. The rest of the time it's really nice not ot have to manage the clutch.
It was reallly nice in this mess not to have to manage the clutch; I was working too hard at just staying upright when starting and stopping...
