But when I had ABS, I never really found a need for it. My motorcycling 
experience and the experience of a lot of other riders (judging by the 
larger number of motorcycles produced without ABS) is not lessened by 
the absence of it either.

I guess next you will tell me I should have the power assisted brakes, 
simply because BMW offers it?
