I think your perception of TC is what most of us have; however, on the BMW system for sure, it does not activate constantly. It only kicks in when it senses a threshold has been met and I believe...

Road Conditions VA 311

A friend was riding VA 311 from New Castle to Sweet Springs, WV and said it was fresh Chip 'N Seal from edge to edge. That was maybe a month ago. Anyone have any newer updates on that section of...

Just a quick reply, both A2's and A3's HATE road snakes. Slide on them more than any other tire I have owned. As far as riding in the wet, I don't trust any tire in the wet and just slow down.
