My ST3 incident was just me being an idiot! I was actually purposely only using the rear brake as an "experiment" when a car stopped suddenly in front of me. I did not hit the car, but did hit the ground.

I do believe in the case of my Bonnie, if I were on my GS with the linked ABS brakes, that I would not have gone down. But I may have sailed through the intersection with the ABS pulsing and been broadsided by a car.

You just never know....
