This brings up an interesting thought (please don''t let this degenerate into another Crash ''I hate x rider-fest''): if the electronics diminishes the rider-tyre reaction, which it surely must do, then how does the rider with more intrusive electronics get to feed-back tyre development info? Seems to me that every ''advance'' in the electronics would add another layer of disconnection between the rider and the tyre technicians so surely there''s a chicken-and-egg thing here. That would mean in turn that the bike with less intrusive electronics could have an advantage if the actual racing takes the bikes outside the programmed ''envelope''. Anybody have any rider-personality-free comments?

There's a lot more to tire performance than acceleration, like braking, turning in, turning in while braking, and mid-corner performance. I think people give TC a lot more credit than it deserves.
