LOL talk about wide of the mark. I consider myself a lifelong student. In the same way that Ted Simon does not consider using better tools than those available to him at the time he wrote Jupiter's Travels - such as GPS - wrong or cheating, Chris Birch is similar: you got TC, learn to use it. And you don't hear him bitching about the bike. You good enough to tell him he's doing it wrong and he needs to 'learn to ride properly'? Similarly, I try to do a rider training course each year. Previously during the emergency braking exercises we were asked to turn off ABS if we had it. Now we are being asked if we have it, leave it on and we should definitely be locking the wheels during the exercise. A clear shift to 'use the tools available to you '. btw the ABS on the 1190 was so good the instructor could not see it operating. I can't image the ABS on the 790 being worse.
