Well I am glad I asked the question about my ABS brakes faulting. We have
not had a discussion like this in a long time.
Everyone has had valid points to make.
I have tried all the suggestions that have been made and none have worked.
So I guess the next thing to do is go see my friendly BMW dealer and hear
the bad news.

Thanks to all that have joined this discussion.

Well, by the same reasoning, a helmet is only useful in an accident if you
hit your head.

What I a mtrying to say is, there can be circumstances where one is
involved in an accident and they are not even given a chance to use
their ABS. Getting T-boned is one such example. There was a member of
the Beeg list that was killed when someone blew through a side street
and hit him. He never got a chance to use ABS, He was already in front
of the car. IOW ABS is not the cure all for avoiding all motorcycle
accidents. So I am not going to limit my motorcycle choices based on a
safety device that only gives limited protection.
