It's fine. If you don't like ABS then you don't ride well enough or know when to turn it off -- and the only time you turn it off is when you want to use the rear brake to "turn", not stop, the bike. Otherwise there is no difference as the ABS only engages when the rider locks the wheel -- you will never see it on any rocky anything, unless you either over-brake and lock the wheel, or want to go Enduro style and whip the rear wheel around and oooops, remember you left ABS on and the rear isn't moving around like you expected.

Now whether or not you want to ride a bike this big like that is a personal choice I guess... I'm not a good enough rider to be comfortable doing that on my Tiger, I'm a puss on my Tiger.
