I know a guy who used to ride a K1200R and an SV650. He doesn't have the SV650 anymore; he sold it after he locked up the brakes and went shiny side down. Technology can be great, but over-reliance on it is not.
ABS is here to stay, like it or not.
I know people who claim they can stop quicker without it, (they can't) but that's not even the point.
Now I just wish they would pass laws on texting and phone use while operating a vehicle.
I'm tired of all the cross over accidents and having to watch out for these distracted people.
I don't recall anyone saying that about ABS for a long time. There seems to be a lot of other claims and a fair bit of "ultimate safety" if you drive a vehicle with it fitted.
Everyone of those people will tell you they can easily perform both, no problem. Often when sitting in the wreckage of their vehicles. Apparently, forcing people to not touch their phone whilst driving is an invasion of personal rights.
