For the front, most wont get into a situation where they lock up the front that much; regardless of what's coming at us in the back of our mind we'd rather hit vs go over the handlebars.
I thought about that but for emergency instances it would be great. Like running off into the grass and panicing and grabbing front brake instead of rear brake.

With ABS I would def not be affraid of using the Rear Brake to adjust corner speed when needed.

I think Im selling myself on ABS

Good point about the grass etc

no front braking at all should be used until it can be controlled.

However, in most cars under a certain speed the brakes are allowed to lock up completely. It depends on the logics built in and how fast the duty cycle is on the system. Most underengineered systems(and Im not stirring chit; but simple/effective small systems will lack less weight but not work as effective) could still lock up the brakes between cycle intervals.

Technology is a very, very good thing but shouldnt be a crutch for a rider to utilise continually.

endos are about shifting the weight of the bike while applying the front brakes, if you lock you front brakes whiles doing an endo, your probably crashin. ABS should not stop you from stoppyin, in fact it should help in case you do start to lock up in the middle of a stoppie because the tire wont slide out, it would control the system, this is all theory though, and should probably be tested, on video. Real stoppies are not for the weak of heart,or uninsured.

ABS takes something away from mastery of a sportbike opening the door to safer transportation of hamfisted riders. Personally, I get satisfaction from learning maximum
braking threshold on my own, with no computer assist.
