I am about to order a new adventure, and noticed that one of the options is "Automatic Stability Control" (ASC). I can't find any reviews or opinions regarding this feature, can someone please share whether this is worth the money or not?
I am planning on riding 80% asphalt and 20% off road, but probably not more than trails. This feature is an additional $400. Also, if you don't mind me adding some questions, how useful is the tire pressure monitor?
I have to make up my mind before making the order since most of the accessories are factory assembly.
Don't know about the 2010 models. I don't expect much (if anything at all) as the bike just went through a face lift. I certainly could be wrong.
Tire pressure monitor.... I have one, but not the BMW version. I like them, but only if I can change the set points. The BMW unit apparently doesn't let you do that. If you air down that 20% of the time you are on dirt you're going to be looking at low pressure warnings 20% of the time. I find that I check air pressure every time I leave my driveway -- much more often than I used to when I had to bend over with a gauge
$400 for ASC? Borderline for me. I've not been in danger from spinning the rear wheel on my '05. But the newer bikes have more horses. Dunno.
