    Welcome to the forum Slayer and congratulations on your new RR!

    If you have any questions just ask

    What sort of riding do you enjoy primarily?

    Enjoy the forum, there is a wonderful community on here and loads of information.
    I hope you have many happy miles ahead of you

    Hi Slayer, welcome to the site and well done on the new bike. The rider modes will affect the way the bike acts but rest assured you will look cool as f13k whatever one you are in.

    Enjoy the bike and the forum.

    Welcome Slayer,
    Enjoy the new toy and forum.
    I stuck it in rain mode after picking mine up in March while there was sleet and rain while riding it home.
    Its been in Race mode for a good while then I changed to user mode fairly recently.
    Ive now played about with slick for the track and it’s a different bike all over again.
    I guess what I’m trying to say is, ride it and find out what works best for you!
    Some will rein you in while others will give you a reminder of how awesome your new bike is.

    Hey Loupe.
    I plugged the dongle in for user and slick when I first got it but have never used them, only rain/sport/race.
    May I ask what settings do you've tried in user? Also, a I right in thinking that the +/- slick button works i all modes, not just user / slick?
    I know the manual explains, but ze german tone gets right up der nazer, yah?
    Also, after June 2016, I try to avoid asking fellow English people complex questions that require a nuanced answer.
    Cheers, H

    Hugh,
    Im currently sitting in Gatwick after my holiday.
    User mode was set to slick for engine, the others were set to race ( this is what I’ve been using on the road) You will get a tick on the dash if all parameters are accepted when you play about with them.
    I think you’re right in saying that the + and - can be adjusted for traction and DDC etc. in user but I’m tired and can’t think!
    Slick mode on track unleashed a different bike altogether for me.
    Others will be along with confirmed info I’m sure.
    I enjoyed my holiday but I’ve missed out on a track day today

    Thanks Loupe.
    You're just up the road, mirror image to when we said farewell in Ullapool (hope you're flying home on a Friday )
