Even an expert would, I believe, benifit from ABS at times. Such as a panic stop with poor road conditions after a long day of riding.Ellary said:All of the motorcycle reviewers in the press are unanimous on the benefits of ABS.
The differences in the braking distances recorded by MCN magazine were achieved by experts at braking. MCN explained that the average rider is not an expert at braking so would probably achieve shorter distances with ABS. If you're thinking you're an expert at braking think again. I doubt that anyone reading this forum is unless they are professional motorcyclists. A friend who rode about 8000 miles a year considered himself an expert at braking his 1500. He bought a non-ABS 1800. Such arrogance can be fatal.
It would be more cost effective to replace it with a '07! :roll:cptdenny said:Would it be cost effective to add ABS now to my wing, that is if it can even be done?
