@ Shuggiemac. I've been riding since I was 6, I've ridden on public roads every day for 13 years, through the depths of winter on 30 miles of ice, through 2 foot deep floods, through Alp roads covered in potholes & gravel, all on sports bikes. Yes the rear goes, but that's when you close the throttle / move body weight. Yes I've come off occasionally, but at no point would TC have stopped me from binning it - I always blamed myself, not the fact I don't have the best tech. If TC makes a difference to your safety on a thou then you're driving too fast for the conditions. Like I said, $ dictates what bike you can buy, not skill. If you could only be allowed bikes to suit your skill level, most people wouldn't make it over 500cc!!!
TC will not help with gravel, cobbles or Diesel - that's when the front goes, not the rear. Ad ifthe rear goes it's because of too much side load, not too much power!
What you're saying is TC helps when you haven't read the road conditions properly / left en
