Yes, a button would be better but it only takes a second. I don't regret getting ABS. I love it on wet tarmac, plus you can change out sprockets & it doesn't mess with the speedo/odo.
A voice of reason. You prefer to ride with ABS off in the dirt but you don't moan and bitch about the crappy ABS because you can't switch it off or it's too hard to switch off.
