I have to say Iím really impressed with the quality of argument both for and against ABS in this thread - particularly Draegerís excellent post which goes contrary to my advice but with which I have a great amount of sympathy and largely agree.

I also ride a Honda ST1100 Pan European with a very sophisticated (ABS, linked and assisted) braking system. On a wet motorway in driving rain itís reassuring to know itís there, but it does involve putting a lot of trust in Hondaís technology. 30 years of riding experience means my natural tendency is like Draegerís - in fact I think weíve got much the same riding philosophy - but itís still nice to know itís there even if I donít depend on it.
