Took mine for its first blast on dirt today,geez what a weapon. I had it in Sport mode with traction control on and it powerslides in 5th and 6th gear beautifully, my previous 950 SE would power slide nicely as well but if you weren't careful it could suddenly step out sideways causing you to quickly back off but not on the 1090 which has great control when powersliding. This was in Sport mode and next time I will try Off-road mode.

Yeah, I had a fun day on dirt playing around with the settings, more open areas were better suited as I started on sport mode without TC.

I made the mistake of leaving off-road ABS on and pushing hard on pavement to next dirt section, was sideways at 50 mph and had to ride it out through a ditch... lesson learned!
