    For that kind of riding, I always disable ABS & ASC completely no matter what mode I'm in. He's considerably going up hills and keeping power to the ground which keeps that front end from digging in.

    You do seem to know what you're doing so I'm not saying you did a bad job, just giving my personal opinion. I actually like riding in road mode off road but with ASC turned off.

    Well, reckon if she don't like it, she can get her own bike. I refuse to put people on the back of my bike. The exception is my oldest son, because he is 8.

    Stock tires, I am not even sure what was on there, I ran them at 36,37 in the front and 42,43 in the rear. Now we have Pilot road 4s and run them at the same pressures. I ran my Conti Trail Attacks at the Same pressures on the GS too. The best I can describe the difference is a smoother ride with much less up and down movement of the suspension...
