Which Setting do you daily drive with? (Wet/Sport/Race)

I took delivery of the bike in Wet mode expecting a lot more than what the bike gave me, switched it to Sport after 30 miles to continue breaking in the motor.. and I still have a disappointed feeling where as the 'soft' power delivery just makes the bike feel too refined and 'soft' (no pun intended) for me. I'm going to play around with the 'Race' mode today and hope it gives me the extra feeling I'm looking for in the throttle.

So my question for everyone else is, do you have problems daily driving it in race mode, do you find sport more enticing for specific reasons? Obviously assuming ideal weather conditions. Does anyone find Sport/Race too much and prefers to daily drive it in 'Wet' mode?

I'd love to hear everyone's opinions on how they Abuse, I mean use this bike.

I use race hi195
I am not sure if my other setting are too conservative because the front end does not come up. Not sure if wheelies are controlled or not by TC etc.

Race / 195hi all the time......not sure about others but it is scary to nail the throttle in the first three gears...wheels come up, traction control kicks in and it explodes down the road...there is a fueling trade off but worth it. Oh, and there is no wheelie control on the 1199.

Suggest you try 195 hi in sport mode first, then you will be able to gauge throttle response without changing the other settings.

there are defaults in race / 195hi that give you the minimum amount of electronic oversight....then you can customize from there. So unless you customized it there should be minimal intrusion. But if you cannot get the wheel to come up then something is not right. Mine will lift the wheel through 3rd gear just stomping on it and I am not a wheelie guy. And I have had the wheel get light at WOT in 4th passing a car.
