Could someone with experience in traction control please educate me (us) on when to engage traction control. Should traction control be turned off when on dirt? Thanks for any insight.
I low-sided a CB700SC on an onramp last year in the rain. There was silt and oil on the road and I had cold, hard tires. It happened just as I was accelerating through the apex. I bet traction control would have helped then.I think traction control is fluff and I wish I didn't have to pay for it. Mine remains off. Hope I don't sound like too much of a braggart or an idiot, but I've been in a lot of weather over the years and, especially with today's modern tires, I've always been in control. (Hope this doesn't hex me.:jawdrop Hard rain, I watch my speed or just avoid it. And in the dirt, who doesn't love to rocket rocks off the back wheel?
