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.
