Pulled up at the lights today alongside a fellow BMW driver (car). He was in the middle lane and I was in the outer. He made it clear by inching forward that he was keen to get ahead of the guy on the inside lane to take the next exit ramp about 200 metres ahead. Well that was my plan as well but i was in the outside lane so I thought i'd better give it a bit extra to get ahead of both cars. Lights changed and it was game on........ well until my front wheel lifted and the ASC kicked in, splutter cough splutter, loss of power then traction and away. just about got to the exit lane in front but it was not as I had planned and it was rather embarrassing actually . Well my first bike with ASC and I now know to turn it off when I plan to get away in a hurry in future on dry roads of course.
