They did make Voxan until 2009 when it was forced into liquidation. Voxan made some cool bikes, I saw a few while living in Germany and travelling Europe. Looks like they completely shutdown after liquidation, and they will use the nameplate on an upcoming line of electric bikes.

3) Brake lightly (because unlike many tech-crutch riders, you actually know how to use your brakes) to slow a little then ride through it smoothly just like you did the last twenty times you encountered road contaminants.

Dakez haz a point, if you're ripping around the corner expecting smooth track conditions all the time, ABS ain't gonna help as the road becomes incredibly slippery when you're leaned way over at speed. I have ABS and am glad I do 'cause I ain't 100% perfect. (Hoo boy, far from it.) But I also don't rely on it. Like he sez, you've never encountered stuff in the road? I expect it at every corner I can't see through, so should we all. In my opinion.

You'll notice it's the only part that's in fucking English. Not French.

And I think it's pretty ironic that they're using a very famous quote from an American to talk about British bikes...
