    I only really ride on track at a decent pace. Last thing I'd entertain is scrolling up down, sideways through a menu.

    I have a 2019 gixer at the moment and it does allow me to change either the mapping mode or traction control level on the go. It is so simple to do but I'd still come into pits to change it.

    I'm changing TC why on track on Gen3. Just 1 button click, no need to look at menu.

    I'm 100% sure TC in Gen4 is exactly the same. More complicated things are done via menu yes.

    He had a very wet trip, spoke to him about it and lets face it he's looking for an angle to speak about spec.

    Plus if he is setting off at 7am say, it's nice to take the chill off.
