I'm sure it was a photo op.......

Rather than a real stoppage 400 miles south of the border......

Hey, What TC should I use as a constant? I thought TC 2 was less aggressive then 1.
but it sucks to always have to set it to 2. For regular riding (highway, city etc) what do you use?

Basically can someone give me a list of TC and what environment and when we should use them such as downpour to light rain. mud etc.
  1. Mud
  2. Snow
  3. Rain heavy
  4. light rain
  5. tarmac dry
  6. gravel

mucho appreciated.

Personally I like it off all the time. TC II is more fun off road if you like the
back end to play a little. TC I kills the fun and is really bad when you want
power on a loose hill or dare I say sand!?

I really need to use more smilies. People think I' always being serious.

I'm heading on a trip in a few weeks with a guy on a KTM 990. I know he'll have a tube I can use should I bend a rim. What should I take to back him up?

Think this will do it?

He will probably already have his own.... just in case.



They are getting hard to find. Between the Orange and Chrome crowd most
trailers have been sold.

Pluric's right...

If I had just been smart enough to buy stock in trailer companies just before the big HD boom, recent KTM sales increases, and before all the BMW final drive explosions I'd be a rich, rich man now.

I hear trailers trade like gold at Sturgis, Daytona Speedweeks, and at any BMW rally...
