I started out riding in touring mode.
Yesterday, I tried urban. I like it.
What mode do you ride in most of the time?

I like touring mode, but because the rear shock is to soft, the bike squats under acceleration! So sports mode it is!

Sport mode most of the time for me. I go to Touring when the road surface is bad and sometimes when I'm just running errands in town in heavy traffic. I haven't adjusted the damping settings off default, but I think I have tinkered with the preload, although I didn't write down what I did, so it's a bit fuzzy.

Depending on where or how I'm riding, I'll use each of the modes. Most of the time I'm in Touring mode. If I'm stuck in really bad stop & go traffic for a while, I'll switch it to Urban so the off/on throttle transitions and slow speed minute throttle changes are smoother. I'll use Sport mode when I feel like riding more aggressively. And finally Enduro comes in useful when I'm riding on gravel roads. I've noticed that, at least when riding two-up and fully loaded, that the traction control kicks in a lot in Touring, so my Enduro mode reduces that intrusion for me.

When my '16 was still alive I used to ride touring around locally most of the time. Sport was too snatchy for anything except the wide open road.

Curious what tires you run when experiencing traction control intervention in Touring Mode.

After two tickets, I realized what my trouble was. I'm now a self-imposed Urban rider around town. :frown2:

On my 11 I use Touring most of the time for commuting but switch it to Sport when the weather is warm. I customized Urban to have the maximum traction control setting and I use that as a rain mode when it's slick.
