Hey hans, pleased to meet ya,,,,,,,as u might know from my posts, recently purchased my '18 1100 sport used in dec. '21, and only test rode it 5 minutes at dealer as is been winter here; our ride season starts april 1st; was wondering, which of the '3 ride modes' do u find most pleasing? Right now mine is in 'journey' mode,,,,,,,,,I have studied the owner's manual but still wondering; strictly an urban around town driver,,,,,,,,,,

Hello mate,

right back at ya!

Congrats on your bike purchase, I am sure you can´t wait for the season to start! It´s the same for us here in Europe, still too cold. Next week is supposed to get warmer, so I am hoping to put some miles on my beast!

To be honest, I could barely tell the difference between the 3x riding modes when I bought the bike. They all felt very very similar and I had to really pay attention to feel any difference. I recently tested BMW R18, and flicking through the 3x riding modes on that bike, I could feel there was a huge difference in how the bike behaved, which I found really cool. So I am a bit disappointed that the Scrambler´s riding modes are all pretty same. So just to be on a safe side, I used the bike on the "city" setting riding mode for the first 700 miles break-in period, and after that I have been stuck on the "active" mode.

Bear in mind that you can adjust each of the riding modes in the bike´s menu. If I remember correctly, you can adjust DTC and engine power for each of the modes separately. I played with it a bit, but again, couldn´t really tell any difference :)

Hey guys!

Add me to the list

Traded my 2015 icon 800cc to the newest 1100 sport pro.

Love how smooth the new bike is compared the the older 800
