For that type of condition, I like the handlebar switch on the BMW rather than having to pull a fuse and put it in again when conditions change.

They tell me that on the new LC GS they have the different ride modes operated fron a handlebar switch except for the electronics bypass (the equivalent of "Slick" mode on the S1000RR). This was deliberate as they want the rider to pull a fuse and be fully aware that she/he has chosen to deactivate all the electronic aides (and I guess take full responsibility for any consequences).
