Hello Tom!

How do you know that the ABS has _never_ helped you (except in that 
one occasion)?

I have a 98 RT and I can really step on the rear brake on a new wet 
pavement and I can't tell if the ABS is working. The only clue is that 
the rear doesn't lock.

Even though I cant tell for sure that the ABS has even engaged some 
times I can tell that I would have been in big trouble if I would have 
been riding my previous bike (Honda VF500F).
