I agree. Its one of those things you may only need once but thats when its worth it.

Not to mention turning it off is easy when your switching to dirt.

I will have a hard time buying another bike without it.

Im not worried about it being "one more thing to break," cars have had it for years. The technology is proven.

Not to mention that thats what the purist say about every kind of technological advancement. It gets old guys.

Abs

I would offer a different opinion on ABS. I have racers GP bikes and do not see a need for ABS personally. However I did still buy this. It is a matter of resale. You will get this most of this back in ht end and it could save you along the way. Buy aftermarket riding gear and less farkles to pay for it if needed. This will be a good investment.

Hey Wildman any chance of splitting any F650 links away from the F800 links so they are easier to find. Maybe I just need to look better
