    I had a VFR with the linked braking system. I thought that was a nice compromise. It prevented front-end dive, and if you habitually just squeezed the front brake lever, you never had to worry about accidentally hitting the rear brake too hard in a panic.

    I really think that ABS is an excuse for not being able to properly ride a motorcycle. Unnessecary BS.

    Talk to the hand; long distance riders we benefit from ABS.

    You never know when you will zone off and panic stop.

    I stomp the back brake quite often off road to slide into a corner. Fun, difficult to master, and the cause for a lot of scratches and bruises because I'm still not good at it

    True, it was an option on the 650 but...meh. Sucked on the 1800 Wing, why bother.

    I've heard some talk of ABS becoming mandatory in Canada for street legal bikes. ******** government control at its best.

    I never knew motorcycles came with ABS. Doesn't the pulsing mess you up in curves? (Maybe not so much as fishtailing.) My brother had almost got a motorcycle with a turbo then decide the delayed power hit was dangerous in the curves.

    As a side note, I heard that the new electronic Dura Ace 7900 will come with ABS.

    Correct. In 4+ years riding my bike with ABS, I've felt that ABS chirp -slightly - once. I try to avoid situations that cause the ABS to deploy, because that might very well mean I'm close to getting KILLED.

    Oh yes, do let me know how all that 'I know how to brake my motorcycle' stuff goes for you the next time you're in a panic stop on a wet road. If you survive I mean. They don't call them PANIC stops for nothing you pinheads.

    Those of you arguing against ABS sound exactly like the folks who argued against it for cars. Exact same words. I have nearly 100k on motorcycles over the last 10 years; my next bike will have ABS on it.
