Re: ABS is good

Thanks for enlighten us about the origin of ABS on BMWs.  What I meant was that I whish I had the newer ABS, but I am sure you knew that.

  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...
