It seems to work fine now.

I agree that running knobbies on the street, I prefer not having the ABS on for better feel if not better stopping distances. FWIW
Interesting comment from the dealer. I bent the rear wheel sensor ring and the ABS light came on. After I straightened up the ring and then turned the bike on and off, the light went away.
