DL 650. ABS works fine off road. Even steep decents and snotty roads with inch deep wet clay on them.

I was going to fit a cut out switch, tested on some gravel, the ABS was better than I am, havn't bothered.

Assuming it's nasty:
Technique matters, I just leave the back brake on, doesn't work that well WRT stopping me, but it does an excellent job of keeping the rear wheel behind the front and doesn't take any attention.

Front, brakes on hard, no pissing around, big handful, as soon as the ABS starts shuddering, off the brakes, hit it again. Works better for ME than no ABS.

So, you have a couple of riders who use ABS off road, DL 650, S10 who have no issues.

BMW, not so positive.

Luck
Pete
