And it's exactly where it should shine.
Quote from: Myst1cPrun3 on March 05, 2021, 01:59:43 AMHowever the systems that I have seen, (and the 2019 CBR650r system I tried) is currently not advanced enough for it to function, certainly at its full capabilities. It was juddery, rough, and provided 0 feel from the bike as to what the front end was doing.When it kicks in, it's thinking you're about to lock the front: what the rider feels (or not) when it kicks in is essentially irrelevant because when you lose te front, most of the times you're going down. It just tries to prevent that.

Quote from: Myst1cPrun3 on March 04, 2021, 03:24:35 PMA new rider, (like me) would find this very 'unnerving' (I do) as the suspension on anything that's not a superbike is not what you'd call good for providing feedback. Add that into bad road conditions like in the UK, and then add constantly releasing and reapplying the brakes into that.... It simply isn't safe.What is funny is that bad road conditions (like in the UK) are exactly the situations in which ABS is needed more: uneven surface, wet, suddent change of grip (puddle, gravel, etc). Same for below-par suspensions, ABS will help even more.
It's funny really the only one that isn't developed for speed, but is developed for safety turns out to be the one that is perhaps the most unsafe

Mr Piboso what is the light status now?
Do they work in other bikes online?
It not the same as dash lights, where an 'on' and 'off' texture is needed?

It can be turned down but (depending on manufacturer) it usuallt still cuts in even at 'country' road riding speed/styleAnd they do this because, as everybody knows, ABS is bad for safety, of course.
ABS is a safety feature, no doubt about that, no one is arguing that is a fact, but it's a feature that should be a personal option for each individual rider.
What I personally have an issue with is the fact that it's forced upon the rider. It's just another example of a mothering state taking away personal choice, telling one how one will do things rather than allowing one to make a choice.
For many riders who have little experience and don't ride a bike regularly, riders we used to call "Sunday Riders" not bikers I can understand that ABS would be a sensible option for them to have in operation as those kind of riders are more likely to get themselves into trouble, but for the experienced regular rider, the daily rider, it takes away from their skills and experience as a rider, simple as that.
The mothering state needs to stop!
