Bike runs fine, ABS will not turn off

[QUOTE=docsherlock;20729934]You see, I just don't want shit like this in my life - I have enough already.

That's why I just bought a 2012 V-Strom 650. ABS can't be turned off, but it shouldn't blow a gasket every time one wants to use it either....

Docsherlock: The F800GS runs great, it is just that the ABS will not turn off and it has the option to be turned off. I want to be able to turn off the ABS because I ride dirt about 70% of the time and I need to be able to lock up the rear wheel. I did not mean to imply that the bike was not functional - I just had ABS when I did not want it....which is about 70% of my riding time. BMW will have it fixed in 2 weeks.

I am the one that blew the gasket.....I became trigger happy when I figured out how to insert the cow taking a dump gif.

Cheers and enjoy that V-Strom, looks like a nice ADV bike!
