Are you even aware of X-ring and O-ring chains? The ST would be a MUCH better bike with a chain.
From a maintenance and reliability standpoint it certainly is. I didn't mean for this to turn into a super tenere commercial. The point is, the OP was inquiring about the merits of abs in a forest service road situation, and to that I still maintain that a well thought out abs system is in no way a hindering factor. My only experience with abs offroad is the xt1200z. It simply works.
