New BMW Dynamic control affects?

It's too early to tell, but I wonder how the new BMW riding control will react in a situation like this: http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12156

Will this negatively affect our capacity to ride the machine as we feel necessary to avoid problems? For instance, look at their information and they will control spark and even injectors as necessary..

I suppose they got tired hearing about the poor tire mileage...? =)

Rant ON!.. or inteligent input...

I'd say no effect at all. As I understand it, the new system limits power to minimize wheel spin. In the case referred to, I doubt he had accelerated hard enough to cause a rear wheel spin.

For the sake of argument, let's say there was more power involved, or a more slippery road surface. In that case, he would have either accelerated out briskly with no wheel spin, or had a spin been imminent then he would have accelerated very slightly slower with no wheel spin. With a spin imminent and no ASC, then he would have accelerated out slower, or possibly fish-tailed into a worse situation.

So I see either no effect or a negligible effect. Without ASC there is either no effect, or a potentially serious loss of control.

It's like arguing that a skilled rider can stop faster without ABS. That may be true, but in that split-second that you need to panic brake in uncertain terrain, I'd rather have the ABS kick in than not have it and need it.

You could also make the argument that BMW's decades-old limit of 100 HP may well have caused him to not be able to outrun this particular threat, so that a more powerful bike is a safety advantage. But that would just be silly.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Does this mean we won't be able to do donuts and burn rubber on the LT?

You just have to disable the system first. Kinda like disabling the ABS to do stoppies.
