    hahah like, it should be possible to wheelie with traction control off. but even then, it seems easier in enduro pro mode

    I've made a couple half-hearted attempts with no results, and wondered about this!
    I will have to play with different modes...

    I am assuming that there is no wheelie control in enduro pro is so you can lift the wheel over obstacles.

    I like Dynamic mode for spirited riding, but Road for highway - softer ride. I was never sold on ride modes in the past on my F800GT because they all felt the same, but the ride modes on the F750GS actually work.

    Another important difference with Dynamic mode (besides throttle response, exhaust note, and suspension)—perhaps the most important difference:

    It takes more to activate ABS and traction control. Or, in BWM-speak, ABS and traction control engage at "high coefficients of friction" rather than "all coefficients of friction" in the other modes. For ABS, this means "late control" and "reduced rear wheel lift-off assistant." For traction control: "support reduced" and "reduced front wheel lift-off assistant."

    Translation: allows ever-so-slightly more hooliganism?

    All explained in this crystal-clear chart:

    Definitely useful info for new riders. Personally, I wish I could get the nice exhaust burble/pop of Dynamic mode but with the better ABS/traction control protection of Road. It's too bad there isn't a Custom setting where you can adjust these settings individually.

    "All explained in this crystal-clear chart:"

    HAHAHAHAHA!
    But, new riders won't have "high coefficients of friction"...

    " Personally, I wish I could get the nice exhaust burble/pop of Dynamic mode but with the better ABS/traction control protection of Road."

    Put a pass thru pipe in place of the collector box! You'll get lots more sound of all kinds. In any mode you want.

    Indeed, but that said, BMW modes are well balanced.

    That's too bad, on the new 900 models there is a Dynamic Pro mode that does just that. I get to customize throttle response, DTC and ABS independent of each other. I do exactly what you mentioned, increase throttle response and keep DTC and ABS on the road setting.
