I actually don't recall much in the way of complaints about how it works at all. I think the complaints that have been aired have related to it being more complex to disable than it needed to be for those that want to disable it for loose surface riding, rather than anything wrong with the ABS itself.
+1 I agree i talked about the ABS in my 25K review i did on my blog. The ABS is so much better than the BMW ABS and i think most of us are riding off road with it on. Something the beemers never do. It lets you in put just enough to do a little slide before kicking in and straightening you out. It actually allows me to control the bike the way i like off road. I see no reason to ever disable it in my opinion.
