Uuuummmm...I don't think that's what he meant!!!
You can switch at any speed. Just press the mode button and choose the mode you want. The new mode takes over when the throttle is closed completely. (Just close the throttle; speed is irrelevant and the clutch need not be pulled.)Does anyone know what speeds should the bike be traveling when switching modes?
. . .I'm thinking about riding in the rain this weekend, but my back tire has no tread in the center. The sides still have plenty. They are metzler racetec k3s. Is this a bad decision on my part? . . .
I haven't switched mine in a while but my best recollection is that it doesn't matter how fast you're going as long as you pull in the clutch to make the change. Hit the mode button and select what you want, then pull in the clutch and it switches. That's how I remember it working anywho.I ride for a short distance on a daily basis. Yesterday halfway on my way home it poured heavily in one area, so I switch to rain mode. Man the settings are super nice in rain mode. I get really good feedback from the conditions.
The only issue with switching modes is the amount of time it takes to switch. Does anyone know what speeds should the bike be traveling when switching modes?
Seen some vids of the NW 200, pretty crazy. I'd like to add Macau to that crazy list too! Nothing but armco barriers and buildings everywhere!If you want to see some stone cold hard core racing in the rain and on "city street" painted lines, chase down the 2014 Northwest 200 race on YouTube. The big guns were seriously spinning their tires while straight up and down (to say nothing of leaned over) in the 180-200mph range. It will take your breath away! Check out Michael Dunlop and Guy Martin going at, crossing and recrossing the painted lines as speed. Their bikes looked like they were going to swap ends about half of the time.
Every time I get to thinking that I know how to ride, I just watch about 10 minutes of that stuff and I'm back to ground level again.
