Well, you're both incorrect.  First generation ABS was on the '88-'89 
K100RS and following.  There may have been some 1A ABS on later Ks. 
The Oilhead ABS *is* in fact at the very LEAST BMWs second generation 
system, which was compared semi-unfavorably in the bike press to 
Yamaha and Honda's *first* generation systems due to...long cycle 

Of course there's the /6 ABS...the brakes weren't strong enough to 
lock up anyway...
