 I don't think that I could do this with ABS, however to me, it is safer to 
have a low-sider than hit something head on and fly over it.

Are you REALLY intending to say that a metal valve cover, rubber handle bar 
end and clothing material has greater stopping power than a set of brakes 
stopping the rotation of rubber tires making contact with pavement?
