Glad it worked - on narrow wet road in Lake District last weekend I had need for emergency stop on steep, gritty, wet incline and without ABS - would have been in trouble. I cannot understand those that say ABS is not worth having.

ABS only needs it to work once to fully appreciate it :) Glad to hear it got both of you out of trouble and I hope I won't have to test it myself.

It is interesting reading experiances and thoughts about ABS. Pleased to hear that it did a job when needed. I too do not understand folk who talk it down.
Recently I joined my local IAM group amongst other things they run various skills  courses, on the 18th of this month I will attending a a course dedicated to braking. This will include braking in corners and emergency stops so hopefully will get a feel for the ABS before I need it for real. This will take place in the safety of an airfield so should be great fun
