I hear what you are saying and my intent is not to be argumentative,
Their are really only two negatives I can see:
Oh I know. No ill intent here either. Bikes are all about choices and we all make the ones that are right for us.
|3. Your budget won't let you get the ABS AND the BB kit. One has to have priorities|
I would dito Thatch about the fact that ABS cant be fitted after, so it makes it a no brainer to me to choose the ABS over a custom paint, if you had to make the choice that is (that also assumes i would want the custom paint for the sake of the argument).
..personally if its a given that it is beneficial to your safety i dont care that it doesnt look pretty..imo, it doesnt stick out like a sore thumb and people arn't looking at the ABS ring when they look at your bike. along the same line of reasoning that, the duel disks get in the way of looking at the wheel but i would prefer duel disks that work more effectively than one disk that is less effective
funny tho, i am interested why Thatch you say ABS has limited use in comparison to being on a car...my thoughts are the opposite is all..to me i find ABS on a car a PITA, it throws my car forward at times when it just shouldn't (because one wheel hits something slippery e.g a wet white line or man hole cover etc etc..e.g i am slowly coming to a stop at the lights, one wheel hits a wet manhole cover and the whole car is thrown forward (either into the intersection or closer to the car in front of me)until it re-estabished grip, stupid thing would have stopped fine with the other 3 wheels and no ABS) and being used to driving on dirt roads where the car sometimes drifts around a corner or other poor australian roads with soft shoulders i much prefer to be able to have the control over braking myself (though i appreciate that many people may like ABS on a car and it may have extra benefits in snow, which i rarely ever see let alone drive in it)...
but on a bike it seems to me ABS is of far more benefit, it only takes that one slip up, in a panic braking situation and the bike can be lost (and it gets damaged as do you), its in that situation that ABS seems to me infinitely more useful on a bike to me
