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...
