Is this now on tar, offroad, or both?

On tar - ON
On gravel - OFF

But then I ride like an Ouma
I don't always drop my bike, but when I do, I prefer to drop her in front of a crowd

Agree. Especially on tar. Very few riders can handle a unexpected powerslide in a corner and tell the tale later about it.

On tar all electronics are activated. Except when I want to ride the back wheel.

On dirt I ride ABS on front wheel ON, ABS on rear wheel OFF.

Would love to, but at the speeds I ride, it would take three weeks or so to get there.   :ricky:

TC always on on tar. On gravel enduro or enduro pro. So it stays on on gravel as well, except in pro mode. Depends on the ride and terrain and what tyres I have on...
