Now, my 990 Adventure. Note that the more dirt-oriented factory version, WTF do they call it, "R", which also has taller suspension, has no ABS.
I also used to have a BMW F650GS that had ABS. The ABS on the 990 is better off pavement than the F650's but I'd still like to have it off in dirt. I'm not against having it for pavement which is where most of my mileage is, otherwise maybe I would have disconnected it entirely. But I don't feel like I "need" it on pavement either.
I used to have a V-Strom 1000 with no ABS yet somehow managed to never crash into anything on pavement. And of course my DRZ has no ABS.
