I have a 2012 NRS with ABS, and haven't even noticed the ABS. So I guess that means it feels quite natural, although I don't live on the Wet Coast.If anybody has a 2012 NRS with ABS, Are you liking it? I am still trying to get used to it. It feels somewhat unnatural. Comments, Opinions?
Step on your back brake and test..... Also I do test it to see how well the bike performs, I need it in order to know how much it can brake in case of emergency.You shouldn't be activating your ABS on a daily basis. If you are...you are doing something wrong OR there is something wrong with your bike. I have yet to have my ABS go off.
It is smart to know what your stopping capabilities are. It will feel very unnnatural as the pulsing in the brakes can be felt. My previous bike didn't have abs so I am used to emergency braking without ABS help, I look at it as a tool for "just in case my braking skills can't handle it".Step on your back brake and test.....

You lost me with your use of the word "blocking"? I am not sure if I understand what you are trying to explain.
One thing I picked up on is the breaking in the corner. Why are you breaking in a corner? You should be at the correct speed entering the corner and accelerating through the corner. Not breaking in a corner.
Did you watch the video I posted? Even there it states not to break in a corner.
Also under these circumstances I am fairly certain that if you did not have ABS you would have dumped your bike. Going over this man hole at low speed and grabbing the brake you would have most likely lost traction and tipped over. Not for sure but I would put money on it.I am sorry, by blocking I mean locking the wheel. I was entering a drive way that had a surprise sewage man hole, and that is why I used the brakes-.
Testing proves ABS is a benefit. The video explains it all. If you are experiencing ABS activation often, you are braking way too fast, or have improper expectations (of any motorcycle). If you don't think you are braking too fast, feel free to take your bike to the dealer and have them check out the system.The main issue that I found in comparison with my car, is that my car blocks the wheel one microsecond then liberates it, then blocks it one mili second and then liberates it, and stops working as soon as it sees that the wheel does not get blocked.
Yes they teach you to straighten the bike up right before breaking in a curve if you consider that breaking in a curve...I know that the Motorcycle Safety Courses teach emergency braking in a curve.....
I read the OP. I could say a lot right now but ill be the bigger man. No need to be a D!(* about it.Bottom line every time one of these issues comes up we get somebody stating how you should or can break in a corner. Read the thread and understand your input here is not helpful in any way.
