Emotes missing on the button slide

in the new layout I miss the direct access to the Emotes (ride on, etc) on the Ribbon. The access via sub menu is not funny. Also the sub menu uses the whole Display so you are “out of the game” when giving ride on.

I don’t like it either. I have Apple remote and I can’t get back to my ride effort area ( gray, blue green, yellow , or red zones). I end up wasting HUGE amounts of time and energy and concentration trying to push a tiny button on phone or scroll the notoriously finicky Apple remote to change view. I have made every wrong choice imaginable in rides TTT and races. I HATE that they took 1 click and turned it into 6 scrolls and clicks… thanks for letting me vent!
