    Do you get used to the 'funny' indicators on pre '13 R1200GS models?

    I've not ridden one yet and it looks annoying but swapping from this to conventional (ie LH does it all) does it cause any issues?

    And you have to press both together for hazards??

    I cannot say I like the non-tactile feeling of the 1200 LC floppy indicator switch much either but it is at least 'normal'!

    Nothing "funny" about them at all!

    Ha! And guessing they are an actual clicky/clocky switch rather than the [impression of a butterfly farting] 'puft' when you move (!) a LC indicator switch?

    Being new to the LC indicator switch…..I wish it was like the old one. What a pile of poo the ‘new’ versions are.
