Re: oilheads-digest V2 #9

You won't find a need for ABS right up until the time you make a panic stop 
and it saves your bacon.  Don't think you're such an expert that you would 
never skid your tires in any situation.  Some of the foremost riding experts 
in the world have stated that ABS has saved them major grief.  Now I ride 
plenty of bikes without ABS but I DO prefer ABS for that little additonal 
safety factor they afford.  I CAN see why financially I(or others) might not 
spend $1500 on a $5000 bike to fix them though(just an example-I have a 
R1100rs and the ABS-knock on wood-works perfectly-others have went to the 
poorhouse trying to keep them up).  I'm thinking of buying a new F6500GS 
were the ABS is a bargain.  Only a $500 premium gets you the ABS-which is an 
extremely lightweight and good working next generation system by all 
accounts.  I can't imagine not shelling out the $500 for this in that 
situation.  Plus it'll make it have way better resale value.
