the bike is tall enough now and yes you are fine when moving
but you feel the weight when man handling the bike if stopped !

While I love the offroadness of the bike it will never be a trail bike for me - have a 530 for that

now the ABS is another thing all together - totally useless on the rear wheel
the front might be good someday ? in a panic stop ?
I have a standard brake line for the rear of mine with the theory that if I remove the ABS lines from there and just fill the pump and install some bolts the front will work with no fault light and then the rear will be lockable. At the worst I might have to install a line between the two ports which wouldn't be a big deal but no line would be better.

I'll let you know.
