I'm biased. I don't like my CAR to have ABS. All of us have a built in ABS system, called our brain. Learn proper braking and practice regularly, then it gets better.
I probably wouldn't buy a bike that I could not permanently disable the ABS on. I have driven a number of bikes with ABS, and I do not like it, as it's very tricky to find a braking limit when a computer decides where it is for you.
