I wasn't thinking clearly about it either, but now with coffee in hand instead of ...

Maybe what really happened is that with engine off and the clutch ENGAGED the back wheel will not be turning (in gravel) you'll just be dragging the back wheel along regardless of what the ABS is saying because the engine is just holding the rear wheel from turning via the drive chain, and braking action could be somewhat modulated by the clutch ...

But yeah... understanding what ABS does with ignition on, engine off is something I now think I should understand better
