Triumph ABS or any ABS
 
Greetings all you MOron bastards.Does anyone have any experience with Triumph ABS? Do you like it? Are any there compromises? Hell, I'll take any feedback about any ABS systems you may be using. Though I have never owned a bike with it I have ridden a few BMW's that have it. Recently an R1200r with current generation set up that I was impressed with. Also a previous generation servo system that I felt sucked. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

I've used the ABS on my Tiger twice now. Once when the rear tried to skid on some gravel. Another time when some fool bytch jumped out in front of me in her PT Cruiser from a K-Mart parking lot. Both times it worked flawlessly. Just grab the handle and no worries about stoppies or skidding. Otherwise the brakes feel like normal brakes. I'm sold on it.

I have the triple disc Brembo ABS on my ElectraGlide Standard, ditto what Seruzawa says, it works like a charm specially on wet roads. I rode an '02 BMW for awhile with the power assisted linked ABS set-up and didn't care for that at all. I would have learned to ride around its idiosyncrasy's after awhile but at the time I just didn't care to make the effort. BMW has since changed there logarithms so I would assume it's a little more user friendly now.

I'd recommend ABS for anyone, in a panic type drop the anchor and pray situation it can make all the difference in the world.

I would like ABS on a bike due to knowing it saved me some bumpers on cars over the years and hope for that same reliability on 2 wheels. I wonder if the accident I had this winter hitting the slush would have been avoided had I not been controling my skid into a snow bank and low siding my bike. I knew I was on wet slick surfaces and afraid to brake too firmly wanting to keep the bikes weight over the tires, ABS may have given me that edge to not had to laid it down.

Thanks for the feedback
 
Thanks for the feedback boys. The pros out weigh the cons. It will be on the next bike. And it's only taken me 15 years to make this decision.At least I got that going for me.

Shouldn't have said that. Now you're going to have to endure the wrath of Moke.

Right, because all of these new technological advancements were made for people who don't know how to ride properly.
