I guess it depends on where you live. Coming from a K 1200 LT with a reverse, but living in Flatlorida, for me the reverse was unnecessary. I got "lazy" and used it occasionally. When I heard that the K 1600 GTL was coming out, one of the thing that I hoped was that it did NOT have was a reverse. For me, it was just extra parts that added weight, hardware, electronics and hydraulics. I was happy it was not on the GTL. Now that it's available, I personally would not pay extra for it. In fact, I'd pay extra for to not have it. Of course, that's just me !
As far as the lane departure signals, they are nice but will never replace the head shake. Trust but verify.
