Problems with 2012?

I have noticed a few little annoyances with my new 2012. I wonder how many others have noticed the same things:

I've only had one, the lurch with the cruise control, but at 4000+ miles it has totaly gone away.

do you need to slam the saddlebags? - what about slowly closing them until they latch, then give them a push to secure

That's caused by a faulty remote start switch.
