    I have a 2016 Tiger XCx. Over the last year while pushing hard on really rough washboard I've had the check engine light, Traction Control and ABS lights come on and stay on a half dozen times or so. This is while riding in the off road mode. Turning the ignition off and then back on clears it every time. I'm 99% sure it's associated with riding the rough washboard conditions hard as that has been present every time this has happened.

    Wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Anything to be concerned about?

    I had the exact same thing happened, trying to go uphill with a pillion over washboard.
    The regulatory of the slip / grip cycle fools the ECU into logging a fault "abs ring missing teeth" on the rear wheel.
    Nothing to worry about
