In recent memory, the Big List had a thread which included a link to a news 
station's report (video) on Boston's force getting a fleet of BMW Police 
"choppers" (RTs) to replace their Harleys. The key reason stated was 
standard ABS. FYI, according to Cycle Canada magazine, H-D already has ABS 
under development to address these market needs.
