I didn't completely slam on the brakes because there were bikes behind me and I felt that the deer was crossing far enough ahead of me that I didn't need to come to a complete stop. I probably went from 45 mph to 10 very quickly and very smoothly. I really could't feel the ABS like I could on my old Road King so I can't be sure it activated. But the bike did handle great. The deer crossed about 10 feet in front of me but I was down to 10 mph by then.
