But it's good to also keep in mind: ABS is just a general term for the anti-locking brake system, and there are many different manufacturers as well as many generations of the system used in different decades, not to mention the differences between bikes, tyres, etc. So they will not always function exactly the same way.

I believe all modern ABS systems will help you, if you need to brake hard when leaned over. This test seemed to confirm that.
F*cking Germans!!!

They know about as much about motorcycles as those damn Finns know about rallye driving.

In what sense can economics still claim to be a science if its predictive capacity is so dismally low?
