Oh my, I sense this is quickly becoming a quasi religious argument - "best thing since sliced bread" vs. "wouldn't have it if you gave it to me"!
No argument from me about ABS being excellent technology, not sure I'd go so far as suggesting a government mandate... Once you go down that road it's a slippery slope before you can only buy and legally ride what "the goverment" mandates the dealer can provide. Bye, bye, any customization - bye, bye, performance mods - bye, bye, changing tire brands. We'll all be back in crash tested cages with seat belts and shoulder harnesses - they are safer you know...
