Badassvmax posted it up in their forum. Apparently you have to be pretty darn good to rank #1 or #2 at Yamaha.

I am letting Rowdy know because he wants a good dealership foe his recall work.

Now for all other stuff...Motorcycles Unlimited! Patrick and crew have more than earned my respect and I trust their work. I also really appreciate Patrick's candor. He will always tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear...without compromising customer service!

I'm not anti or pro. I'm indifferent and it doesn't deserve my money. I don't hate it or have anything against it. I don't want it though. Choice is good.

Nope I didn't. Every car I have purchased didn't have it at all. It was given to me as a car to use for my AutoX endeavors so I wouldn't have to use my daily driver at the time as my play car.

The day is coming closer that evey production bike will have ABS just like a automobile does .

There are more advantages to abs than disadvantages . I own a 2012 FJR1300 with ABS . I did not like it at all , but after 12,000 miles , and many situations of riding/conditions it is now liked by myself .

Draw backs is weight , offroad conditions were you want it to lock up (some bikes come with off road mode to disable ABS now )
Extra electronics to fail/maintain as well as making other parts harder to service due to ABS motor controls in the way .

Just go watch a few bike abs videos of braking in the wet on cobblestone
you better be a seasoned rider/racer to manage what the abs system does .
I would also venture out to say very few people will even come close to stopping as short in said conditions without abs , and without crashing .

I just pulled a 50 hour shift so brain is a little fried. Yamaha can do recall work for a Kawi?
