Thank you Petros for the info and Kev for testing. I never gave it much thought, i.e., how it worked. The manly part of my simply wanted nothing to do with anything but the *most* power. I don't think my bike has ever been out of P1 for more than a few minutes.
But that makes a lot of sense... how it works. And might be just the thing for my slow-speed practice: trying to ride the bike at 2 mph in a straight line and then doing tight turns. But then again, there is very little throttle play most of the time if I'm on a flat surface: it's all clutch. But there are often the small inclines where I do have to add some throttle.
And I like slow shifting. I've talked about it before. Slow up-shifting, like I used to ride my bikes in the 80s. But the ATAS wants a quick up-shift. I've been taming her, but now wonder if P3 will help with that too!
Interesting. Very interesting.
Thanks again, Gary
