I'm not sure how their TC system works, but on a car the TC kicks in as you loose traction, so you feel the rear slip slightly and the TC kicks in and corrects, but on a bike I would think that might cause a highside

Send a email to BMW about their S1000RR and ask them how their traction control system is working out.

I've test rode a bike with it and I saw the light come on that meant it was doing something and I didn't even notice it. It may have been because it was turned to the most sensitive setting. I don't really know what it is supposed to feel like. Supposedly on the higher settings you can literally be in mid turn and give it WOT and let the computer do the work for you. From what I understand it gradually brings the bike back in line unlike a car which turns off the power to the wheels like a light switch. I'm sure someone on here has one and can chime in.

that clears it right up, I figured it had to be something like that, I was just imagining a TC system like a car, which would be scary

oh well, feeling that rear wiggle around is my TC, telling me to slow the down

TC seems to work great on wet pavement!

on my s1000rr you can see the TC working when the tail light flashes and the dash led also flashes.... i have tried the settings on race mode and it works great!
