Very stupid statment....ABS would work great with a newbie and a seasoned veteransanteg said:i would rather use the money for mods. i see no sense for ABS on motorcycles unless you have no experience at all, in that case... the beast is not for you
well, traction control is one thing and ABS is another, Abs is not effective in curves, maybee a little dangerous, the only use for it is on slippery surfaces, and if your a newbee, it just give a false sense of security and you WILL go downJDR_ROD said:Very stupid statment....ABS would work great with a newbie and a seasoned veteran
Look at Formula one racers they are some of the best in the world but their cars have traction control and other driver aides
ABS one day might save your life or your ass!! :spank:
It's always nice though to have a little extra something just in case. Expierence will not get you out of EVERY situation. Why has Harly equipped their police cruisers for ABS for so many years. I don't think it's because motorcycle cops don't know how to ride.santeg said:B.T.W... i dont know noone in drag racing with ABS.
Noor any Gran Prix teams that race with ABS on there machines...
They must not have arrived at that technology yet,
or maybe they know something that we dont.
its a well know fact that you can stop sooner without it than you can with,
If you dont know how to drive a motorcycle, especially a vrod, you will eventually meet the asfault, ABS does not make up for neglect.
I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those places.

Yes, they go through countless hours of training and then they train for competitions as well. Their training never ends, it is ongoing and they must pass some pretty hard test to stay a motor COP. I attended a skilled riders course that was 2 days long taught by motor COP instructors and it just gave us a small sample of their training. I plan on attending a new advanced course that they just started up here in Jax as well. I enjoy the classes and I feel you can never have too much training so that you can survive on the streets. It's also a good refresher to take these classes even after you have been riding for years. When you feel that you have mastered your bike, that is when it is time to sell it, cause you are going to find out you haven't.santeg said:To be a cop on 2 wheels i think they got go thru some kinda bike school, they say its like boot-camp, in my opinion, it should be mandatory before they give you the FOB
If purple monkeys weren't meant to fly then why do i only see them when I'm high?
:stilpoke:santeg said:your right, safety wise, you asked for an opinion, we should all be in cagers than if you start down that street,
all i am saying is that if your self consious and aware when your cruisin', than ABS is a waste of money. If your not consiuos of your situation than ABS wont save you, For how ignorent people tend to be, they just might risk more thinking that ABS will stop them. Only for certain situations MIGHT it actually be usefull, On slippery surfaces, but in those situations its the curves that get you, A better set of tires would be money well spent, better lights so that you can be seen, nitrous...
