12GS - VSS or tapping ABS? (electronic cruise control)

Wow there are a lot of electronic cruise control mentions in here, but noone has posted methods for getting speed.

I can't get the audiovox unit many of you use, but I can get alternatives that pickup VSS signals or have a hall effect sensor and a few magnets you mount on a drive shaft or wheel.

Now, my 12gsa has abs and like all the 12's, has a hall effect sensor in the rear drive that does double duty as abs and road speed (I think that is how i'm reading the circuit diagram).

Has anyone ever tapped an abs sensor for a pulse signal to get a cruise working?

If you try to tap an injector/spark etc lead on a 12, where did you do it?

And finally, for those of you who go bush a lot or bury the bike on water crossings, any thoughts on whether electric units are sealed (vacuum ones certainly are not) or if you could add a snorkal to a vacuum unit?
