There is a video out there that demonstrates stopping on gravel, once with ABS on and once with ABS off. With the ABS off, the rider could lock the rear brake. The dirt piling up in front of the tire helped slow the bike to a relatively quick stop. Then, he tried the same stop with the ABS on. He blew by the camera, brake lights glowing, like he had no brakes at all. That video pretty much put the issue to bed.
