What are your thoughts on ABS on bikes?

Watching the following video makes me shudder and hurt. I came off from locking up my front wheel in the wet during an emergency stop. I hate that feeling of locking up. And with ABS, you are keeping the bike at that point, constantly briefly locking the wheel. You holding the brakes FULLY on, and trusting the electronics to keep you upright.

Don't get me wrong, I WILL get ABS on my next bike, as it looks like a life saver!


For a better explanation on how it works (on a modern system), and to see a comparison, see this video: (fireblade)

That does seem really good but you get to used to that and then try and ride a bike without abs and you lock wheels up all the time.

Well.... really you shouldn't have to use the ABS very often...
