Re: R1200GS brake question

Pat,  Contrary to what Marco has said; I am pretty sure there were a 
small number of non abs 1200GS units sold this year.  If you are really 
seeing that, I would look at the bike and see what the facts are.  I 
did see one owner report that he had a non abs model and he said the 
brakes were terrific.  My understanding was that the  non abs bike had 
conventional, old fashioned, hydraulic brakes, but I don't know this 
first hand.

You need to look at this bike.  My bet is that it's a good'un.
