    Interesting, this builds a little more on what was discussed in the other thread but I'm still not convinced it's actually a design limitation. Would be a massive oversight by BMW especially in the case of the more off road biased bikes using this exact system, like the GS that can accept drastically different shape and traction tyres.

    What I want to know is are the conditions truly the same on back to back tests, maybe the tyre is just not as sticky as one believes it to be given the conditions. And lastly did be reset his adaptations at each tyre tested.

    Probably not, but where can the user reset it?

    As I mentioned in the other thread, with the use of either Motoscan or GS-911 diagnostic tools, mine is due for a rear tyre soon I'll take some pics when I'm resetting the adaptation. Idea is probably that BMW expects you to take the bike back to them for tyre changes and they'd do this for you, obviously reality is that noone goes to BMW  for tyres lol.

    Thanks for posting...I didn't even know resetting the tires was a thing and I have been changing my own tires on my gen 1 for 4 years.  Oops..

    For those of us that didn't read all the German was there a TL;DR somewhere?  Which tire did he think was the best?  I have Road 5's on my gen 1 and like those just fine, but I also like the Roadtec 01's that came on my gen2 as well even though I don't have a ton of miles on them yet.

    I only had a glancing read but his conclusion was that the DTC system was optimised for flatter, round touring tyres, specifically the OEM T31s and Roadtec 01s. Tyres with steeper curves and peakier profiles had more DTC intervention. As I said, I accept his results, I'm just not sure about the conclusion.
