Just to put my money where my mouth is, I recently purchased my third 05 R1200 with servo-ABS. Never an issue.
Tick tock, tick tock... sooner or later, the servos will crap out.
It was a solution looking for a problem!! For a noob considering a GS, I'd say get one without servos to avoid a nasty surprise later. If it was such a good idea, bmw would have kept using them.. power assisted brakes on a car proved to be a good idea.. on a bike? nope.
