I switch to Urban for rain too, but riding a round town it is smoother due to the throttle setting.

I never really have a chance to "ride around town." The nearest town doesn't have a whole lot of stop and go.

I find it harder to wheelie over the potholes and jump the speed bumps in Urban so I go for the middle ground of touring around town.

I tried it and it is really smooth. It is like cutting 50 HP to the engine. Good for riding in traffic or in the rain. Nobody is looking to ride in the rain but it happens without looking for it.

I use in traffic (stop and go). And in rain plan on cranking the traction control all the way up and using it for that also
