First, though, I experimented with the standard KTM 1190 Adventure ABS and traction control software. I leaned the Skidbike over at 25-30mph and grabbed a reckless amount of front brake. The limited contact patch broke free quickly, followed instantly by quick pumps in the brake lever and the front wheel struggling for traction. The sensation of exercising the limits of traction became observable and not stressful, downright easy, because I wasn’t worried about tipping over. Because I couldn’t. Same with TC, I could spin the throttle wide open, feel the engine sputtering to accommodate the lack of traction, and not worry about screwing up. The only thing left to do, obviously, was turn all of the electronics off.
