I ride all winter long, even in the rain, and I won't have my daily rider be anything other than ABS equipped.
As far as being safe, I think you and most other bicycle riders have a big edge over non-bicycle riding motorcyclists. Once you get to the point of being proficient in the number one motorcycle physical survival skill, swerving, then you add braking, it then all comes down to situational awareness and good judgment. Experienced bicyclists have an edge in that regard.
Speaking of skills, let me show you just how great my motorcycle skills are.
Here my “friends” can’t stop laughing and taking pictures long enough so they can help pull me out after I showed how not to ride in deep mud.
