I bought my bike used and it came with ABS so it wasn't a decision I had to make. I guess I had almost forgotten that I had ABS until a ride in Joshua Tree Park a couple of weeks ago when a coyote suddenly appeared on the side of the road, hesitated and then bolted across the road. I saw him and when he hesitated I stupidly eased of the brakes which meant I really had to jump on them when he bolted about 40 yards in front of me. I was doing about 50 mph and the ABS did it's thing really well bringing me to relatively smooth emergency stop missing the coyote by about 20 feet. No major drama other than a required underwear change .....

ABS - I am now a believer!
