Our traction control who art from Heaven
« on: April 09, 2016, 06:39:10 PM »
Went out for a quick trip from Hants to middle of nowhere Wilts today. Beautiful weather until A303 when sun disappeared and it dumped it down. About 5 miles from my destination on a little single track lane, went round a medium right hander and the bike slid about a metre to the left, doing about 40mph. Must have hit some mud or summat slippery...Before I could think shi....yellow triangle a flashin...bike regained normality and swooped around corner...no more dramas. Wow...I'm pretty bloody impressed, Big Thanks to Baby Jesus and BMW's TC!

Yep, I had a few moments in December out the back of Wantage on some of the smaller white roads. Good to know it works!
